For many couples, a prenuptial agreement is a smart choice. A prenuptial agreement can help you protect premarital assets and plan for the unexpected, as you enter your marriage relationship. The attorneys at Miller Lyden P.C. draft and review prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Our attorneys also litigate the validity of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in a divorce for clients seeking to contest or uphold the existing agreement between parties.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between people about to wed that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of divorce or death. Such agreements can vary widely, but typically the content includes provisions for division of property/assets and spousal support in the event of divorce or legal separation.
A postnuptial agreement is much like a prenuptial agreement, however it is a contract that is written after a couple gets married. It is executed to settle the couple’s assets in the event of legal separation or divorce.
