Issues to Address in a Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreement
When you draft and sign a legally sound marital agreement, you can experience peace of mind in knowing that your interests will be protected in the event of a divorce or separation. This is important no matter your age, health, or the amount of assets you have – if you have anything you would like clarified and decided upon, such an agreement may be in your best interests.
With a postnuptial or prenuptial agreement, you can reach arrangements related to:
- The marital home and other real estate;
- Investments and bank accounts;
- Retirement and pension plans;
- Personal property, vehicles, and other assets;
- Earnings during the marriage;
- Business ownership; and
- Spousal support (in some cases).
Marital Separation Agreements
There is a third type of marital agreement, called a marital settlement agreement (MSA). Couples enter into this type of agreement upon a divorce, and it will contain provisions regarding property rights, custody and visitation, support, and other necessary issues.
