Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Pre-Nuptial Agreement

Married CoupleA prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into between two people before they get married to one another. In the past, wealthy individuals used them to protect their wealth in the event of a divorce. And now, many couples of lesser means are now using the “prenup.” Often these types of marriage contracts include “renewable terms” and/or can expire after a certain date.
