PRE MARITAL AND POST MARITAL AGREEMENTS
A pre-marital agreement is a legal contract that is created and signed before the marriage. The purpose of a pre-marital agreement is to prevent any problems or disputes over property and support that could occur in the future or upon divorce. Pre-marital agreements may be especially important for those people who have accumulated substantial assets prior to marrying or who have children from a prior relationship.
A post-marital agreement is a legal contract that is created and signed after marriage. It is also called a marital settlement agreement or property settlement agreement. Generally, marital agreements provide circumstances for payment of support, division of property and debts, child custody, child support, parenting plans, visitation, and/or timesharing.
