Benefits of Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

While it may seem difficult and not romantic, couples may benefit from discussing finances early in the relationship and establish added trust concerning money matters. However, the courts view these agreements with immense scrutiny, ensuring that both sides have made a full disclosure of all asset and financial information and each party seeks separate counsel prior to entering the contract. As long as the agreement isn’t unfairly one-sided, these agreements will be upheld in court.

Benefits of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements include the following:

  • Protects separate property from becoming marital property
  • Protect the debt-free spouse from being obligated to share the debt
  • Avoid court litigation
  • Reduce conflicts corresponding with divorce
  • Protect financial stability of a spouse’s children, if the respective spouse has been in a previous marriage
  • Protect the inheritance rights of children and grandchildren from a previous marriage
  • Protect your business or practice from being involved in divorce proceedings
