About Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Cases
Prenuptial agreements are made and signed before marriage. Couples who are in the midst of preparing to get married frequently make a prenuptial agreement that states the financial obligations and rights of each spouse clearly in the unfortunate event of a divorce. It is considered a legal contract that states all the debts and assets of each person prior to the marriage. When drafting the agreement, there needs to be fair and full disclosure from both parties. The prenuptial agreements can also be used to decide the rights of a spouse in the event of death.
Postnuptial agreements refer to contracts that are made and signed during the marriage. These agreements are usually made when there are changes in the financial situations or marital relationship that results in one or both parties having to seek more financial security but there are no plans for the couple to separate or divorce. Some of the most common reasons why people make postnuptial agreements are:
- A spouse incurred large debts
- A spouse inherited assets recently
- A prenuptial agreement has been discussed but not signed
- Failing to control traffic entering the zone… and more.
- Financial concerns due to some kind of betrayal
- Second marriages that involve children from the first marriage of either party
