Premarital Agreements

Prenuptial & Postnuptial agreements

Pre-nuptials, or pre-marital agreements, always have a negative association.  They were once reserved for only the wealthiest people. Now they are more common even among those without large financial portfolios. Couples who may choose pre-marital planning include those who have been married previously and want to ensure their property is documented prior to a second marriage. Those who have received a large inheritance, or expect to do so through a trust fund, may also choose this option. People who are marrying out of their income bracket may also want to use pre-marital planning in order to keep their marital assets separate from their business assets.  The same can be said of post-nuptial agreements.
