Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements are contracts that are drafted and executed before a couple is married. Postnuptial Agreements are contracts that are drafted and executed after a couple has married. Both types of agreements serve to delineate how assets and debts will be handled and can also address issues of alimony or spousal support in the event of death of divorce. Prenuptial and Postnuptial agreements are wise when spouses wish to reduce the risk of litigation, the costs associated with litigation, or the uncertainty arising from a spouse’s death or separation. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are especially important when there is a difference in wealth, the spouses or one spouse owns a business or businesses, there are children from previous relationships, there are alimony or support orders from previous relationships, and when the spouses own property.
It is important that these contracts are drafted with skill, knowledge and attention to detail. The experienced and informed attorney’s at Marilyn Colon, P.A. are prepared to work diligently to negotiate terms to secure your future and protect your interests.
