Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Simply stated, prenuptial agreements exist because marriages are essentially contracts.

These documents establish a maintenance and managements of a couple's finances, citing factors such as closely held family businesses and the needs of children from prior relationships. Possessions of both traditional and sentimental value should also be mentioned.

In this way, the parties' individual investments and contributions are clearly defined in the event of an "operative event" which could end the marriage. "Prenups" can go a long way to clearing up disputes before they begin, during the divorce process.

Postnuptial agreements, on the other hand, can lay the groundwork and "ground rules" for a legal separation, and for wants and needs of both parties after a divorce is finalized.
