Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement: Which Is For Me?
Both premarital and postnuptial agreements serve the same function. They identify separate versus community property, address each spouse’s duties regarding spousal maintenance, and set out directions for how to divide marital assets and debts in a divorce.
However, you make a prenuptial agreements before the marriage and postnuptial agreements after it. Courts tend to enforce prenups more often; however, as long as the postnup is legally valid, the court will usually honor it. If you have not yet married, have your lawyer make a prenup. If you have already married, ask for a postnup.
