The Difference Between a Prenuptial and a Postnuptial Agreement
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are designed to help spouses protect their assets and property in the event of a divorce. While they generally serve the same function and provide the same benefits, the primary difference between them is that one is signed before the marriage and the other is signed after the marriage. Oftentimes, postnuptial agreements are created as a type of ultimatum to make a struggling marriage work.
Here are some of the benefits of creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement:
- You will define your expectations
- You will have a sense of financial security
- It can provide peace of mind
- If you divorce, the process will be more efficient
Aside from addressing asset and property division, there are a few other unique provisions spouses can include in a marital agreement, such as who will receive custody of a dog, cat, or other pet. However, you cannot include anything related to your children, such as custody or support.
Creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement does not mean that you believe your marriage will fail. Moreover, if you later decide together that you no longer want your prenuptial agreement, you can revoke it. Keep that in mind as you and your partner move forward.
