Protecting Your Future: Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are essential tools for protecting your financial interests and ensuring clarity in your marital relationship. Many couples make the mistake of thinking they cannot benefit from these agreements, but the truth is that any couple can benefit from them, regardless of income. With the guidance of a skilled family law attorney, you can develop a nuptial agreement that protects your best interests if the worst should ever happen.

At the Law Office of Matt Sossi, we provide comprehensive guidance on these agreements to help you safeguard your assets and plan for a secure future. We understand that there is no telling what the future may bring, and we want to help you prepare for it. In the same way that wearing a seatbelt does not mean you are expecting a car accident, a nuptial agreement can provide you and your spouse the safety net you deserve during a divorce. Whether you are getting married or are already married, you can still benefit from a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

The Benefits Of A Nuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement, or “prenup,” is a legal agreement that a couple enters before marriage. This agreement outlines the distribution of assets and debts in the event of a divorce. It can also address other financial matters, such as spousal support and property management during the marriage. Prenuptial agreements are particularly beneficial for individuals who:

  • Own significant assets or property
  • Have children from a previous relationship
  • Expect to receive a large inheritance
  • Own a business or professional practice
  • Have substantial income or earning potential

A postnuptial agreement, or “postnup,” functions similarly to a prenuptial agreement, but is created after the couple is already married. This agreement also details the division of assets and liabilities in case of a divorce and can be used to clarify financial responsibilities during the marriage. Postnuptial agreements can be a major asset for couples who:

  • Have experienced a significant change in financial status after marriage
  • Wish to update their financial arrangements due to changes in circumstances
  • Own a business or acquire new assets during the marriage
  • Want to protect the inheritance rights of children from previous relationships

Both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements serve to protect your financial best interests. These agreements do not indicate a lack of faith in a relationship. Instead, they preserve the good intentions that you and your partner have for one another if a marriage ends. They also offer couples peace of mind, knowing that their financial needs are protected during or after a marriage. We can help you set clear terms in your nuptial agreement to avoid costly and taxing legal processes and give everyone the opportunity to move forward sooner after a divorce.
