Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are contracts through which the parties try to resolve what will happen with their finances and assets in the event that the marriage is dissolved. Prenuptial contracts are completed before the marriage occurs, and postnuptial agreements are executed after the marriage has already taken place.
The main purpose of a prenuptial or a postnuptial agreement is to eliminate the mystery of what a judge or jury would do with division of property and in awarding alimony in the event of a divorce. So long as these agreements meet certain requirements, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are normally enforceable. At Brezel Family Law, LLC we have extensive experience in drafting enforceable prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
