Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

BPR Law Group can customize either prenuptial or postnuptial agreements that set out each spouse’s assets, debts, and property rights, and settles how property and spousal support will be handled in the event of a divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements ensure an estate is distributed according to a party’s wishes, protects the estate from inappropriate or unreasonable conduct by a spouse, and can protect the interests of children from a previous marriage.

A postnuptial agreement is a voluntary contract created after marriage. The intent of postnuptial agreements is to stop conflict and promote harmony by resolving disputes between spouses over finances, assets, or even children. Postnuptial agreements also can be beneficial if the financial status of either spouse changes, such as through a career change, an inheritance, change in investments, or the selling of a business.

The need for prenuptial and postnuptial agreements is increasingly more important as individual’s economic circumstances grow more complex. It is prudent that certain kinds of property acquired before and after a marriage be identified and their potential future disposition clearly agreed to in a one of these agreements. This can help avoid litigation in the event of a subsequent divorce.
