Let's take a look at the difference between prenuptial and postnuptial
What Is a Prenuptial Agreement & Why Get One?
A prenup is an agreement between a couple drafted prior to their marriage.

This agreement becomes effective on the date when both parties have signed.
Entering into a postnuptial agreement is an alternative to trial for divorcing
spouses to resolve all issues resulting from the dissolution of their
marriage. These agreements may be included in a court order, often without
the need for a court hearing.
Benefits of a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement
Getting a prenup or postnup can come with the following benefits:
Planning for the marriage: In many ways, the process of creating a prenuptial agreement can also
be seen as a way for couples to plan for their marriage. You can outline
expectations and resolve disagreements regarding finances at this early
stage to avoid disputes down the road.
Planning for divorce: In the event that the marriage does not work, entering into a postnuptial
agreement allows the parties to resolve matters concerning finances, who
will remain in the marital residence, and
child custody without going through the stress, expense, and uncertainty of a trial.
You will find peace of mind knowing that your interests are legally protected
by an agreement that was negotiated on your behalf by one of our experienced
and competent marital agreement attorneys.
