As the wedding bells prepare to ring and your big day draws near, it is important you think of your future between you and your soon-to-be spouse.

What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement, or more commonly known as a “prenup,” is a contract that two people can create before they marry to address key issues that could arise in the event of their supposed divorce. While prenups were once mainly used by the rich to protect high-net-worth assets, prenuptial agreements have since been used for a wide range of reasons and can be useful for all couples. The best way to think of a prenup is by comparing it to a fire extinguisher: you hope to never have to use it, but if you do, you will be glad it is there.

Prenuptial agreements can help couples prepare for a variety of issues, including:

A prenup can also include instructions on how assets will be distributed in the event of a spouse’s death, particularly in cases where spouses marry with children from previous relationships. It is important to note that prenups are not absolute, as there are some issues that cannot be determined ahead of time. Child custody and child support may not be established in a prenup, as child support belongs to the child and custody must be made in alignment with the child’s best interests. While a prenup can assist with these negotiations, a judge may overrule its terms if he or she sees fit.

What If I’m Already Married?

If you are already married, you may still create a postnuptial agreement or a “postnup.” The only difference between a postnup and a prenup is the time in which it is created. Postnups are in many ways exactly the same as prenups and can be used to solve the same types of issues, only they are made after a couple has already gone through with their marriage. Many couples opt to create a postnup simply because they run out of time to create a prenup, or they simply do not have the desire to talk about divorce before their wedding. Either way, marital agreements can be invaluable tools to help couples minimize the stress of divorce.
