A prenuptial agreement is a contract signed before marriage to establish the resolution of certain terms in the event of a divorce. Primarily, a prenuptial agreement seeks to identify separate property assets brought into the marriage by the parties and to protect these assets in case of divorce. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can also address issues of spousal support in the event of divorce. These agreements cannot address issues of child support or custody of a child yet to be born. A well-crafted prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can settle all of the financial matters of a divorce long beforehand to protect your interests and avoid a contentious battle in the future.
