Frequently Asked Questions

What are Prenuptial Agreements and Postnuptial Agreements?

The difference of a Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement is in the timing of the document.  The issues that are addressed are identical.   A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract entered before marriage, but is conditioned on the marriage.  Issues covered by a Prenuptial Agreement include divorce, separation, death, taxes, and living expenses.  If in a Postnuptial Agreement you are still a happily married couple, then you’re talking about what happens in the event of a divorce, separation, or death.  If it is a Postnuptial Agreement, because the divorce is going on right now, then the primary topic you cover are divorce-related issues.
