Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Pre-nuptial agreements are prepared for couples who are planning on marriage, and usually reflect the decisions made as to separate property, property acquired during the marriage, debts of the parties and, in some instances, decisions should the parties divorce.
Post-nuptial agreements are prepared and signed at some point after marriage, and usually reflect the same decisions as a pre-nuptial agreement.
Parties to either type of agreement should have independent legal counsel, and agree to full disclosure to each other concerning their own financial situations. Neither a pre-nuptial agreement nor a post-nuptial agreement is binding on the Court regarding issues of child custody or support.
