Pre-Nuptial (Pre-Marital) Agreements

A prenuptial or pre-marital agreement (“prenup” for short) is a written contract created by two people before they are married. A prenup typically lists all of the property each person owns (as well as any debts) and specifies what each person’s property rights will be after the marriage.

An agreement made during marriage, rather than before, is known as a “postnuptial,” “post-marital,” or “marital” agreement.

You may need a Pre-Marital Agreement if:

    • You want to pass separate property to children from prior marriages.

    • You want to clarify financial rights.

    • You want to avoid arguments in case of divorce.

    • You want to get protection from debts.
