Post & Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Family Law Attorneys Protecting You Before and During your Marriage

No couples want to think about divorce before they are even married, but a marriage contract is a useful tool for many. Contracts signed prior to or during marriage can protect a variety of interests. Prenups (shorthand for prenuptial agreements), for example, can be used to designate certain property, such as a family business, as separate (and not marital) property. 

Postnuptial agreements, which are entered into during a marriage, serve a similar purpose. These forms, like prenups, designate certain assets and property as separate property in case of a divorce. 

Couples who are marrying later in life can especially benefit from a marriage agreement, as well as forward-minded couples who seek financial security in life. Terms in these marriage contracts can impact child support, alimony, and child custody if a divorce occurs. 

You should retain the services of an experienced family law firm to ensure your interests are represented in the contract. Farmer, Farmer & Brown Law Firm can help with that; call us to get started with a consultation.
