Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be difficult topics amongst couples, and oftentimes they are seen as a negative aspect to a marriage. At the Law Office of Steven N.

Pre & Post Marital Agreements – What They Can & Cannot Do

As a general overview, nuptial agreements are designed to help couples determine certain aspects of their divorce, should it ever occur. For example, a prenuptial agreement can help ensure that one party retains the majority of their assets if the couple were to divorce. A postnuptial agreement can help alter the terms of a prenuptial agreement if circumstances change in the future.

It is important to understand what these agreements can do for your future, what they cannot do, and how you may enter into this agreement with your significant other. A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into between an unmarried couple that determines some terms of a divorce if it were to occur in the future. A postnuptial agreement is the same kind of contract; however, it is entered into by both individuals after the marriage has commenced.

Examples of what they can accomplish:

  • Clarify the responsibilities of each party during the marriage (excluding some demands)
  • Protect each party from the other party's debts (incurred prior to the marriage)
  • Protect the finances of one party from division in the case of divorce
  • Protect the physical property of one party from leaving the family
  • Provide for children from any prior marriages

What they cannot accomplish in the case of divorce:

  • Spousal support requirements
  • Specific child support requirements
  • Anything that might encourage a divorce
  • Custody, visitation, or other related terms
  • Make any rules regarding nonfinancial matters
