Mooresetown Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys – Premarital and Mid-marriage Agreements
Prenuptial agreements — These arrangements are made before the marriage with sufficient time for both parties to review the proposal and its conditions. Many individuals use this to protect certain assets or business interests from becoming included in marital property and division should the marriage end.
Postnuptial agreements — Similar to prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements protect certain assets, property, business interests or investments, but the agreement is made somewhere in the middle of the marriage. Many couples use this as a contingency plan for circumstances that have arisen during the marriage, including medical conditions and certain business situations.
Whether the agreement is made previous to the marriage or during its duration, all details of the arrangement must be clearly outlined and detailed in writing, specifically mentioning assets involved. It is critical that your representation carefully and correctly prepare the original prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Errors and oversight can result in the entire agreement being negated, no longer protecting your interests and leaving you vulnerable. These mistakes can include a failure to provide adequate disclosure of finances and assets to the party signing the agreement. These must be provided with enough time for the other spouse to seek legal counsel and review the assets in question as well as the agreement being proposed.
