When To Consider A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement
If you have significant assets before you tie the knot, you should consider working with a lawyer to protect those assets. Here’s why.
If you own property before you get married, it may get commingled after you marry. When this occurs, identifying such property as “separate” in the event of a divorce can be tricky.
If you have children of a prior marriage, you should also consider entering into a prenup if you want to preserve certain assets for those children in the event of death or divorce.
Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are executed after marriage.
Individuals often utilize a postnuptial agreement if, for example, one spouse receives an inheritance, workers’ compensation or a personal injury settlement.
