Post-Marital Settlement Agreements

Postnuptial or Antenuptial Agreements

In general, post-marital agreements, or Marital Settlements, define the terms of divorce, and any relationship maintained by the two spouses once litigation proceedings have met a conclusion. These types of agreements are formed after marriage or prior to a divorce.

The most common mandates of divorce settlements are related to property, any children that were part of the family, and finances in addition to a number of other terms which are usually case-specific. Post-marital agreements are also called “partition agreements” because it allows couples to separate their assets onto separate enemies.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements, or “prenups” as they’re often called, are written documents which dictate how property and assets must be divided in the event of a divorce. Considering that half of all marriages end in divorce, prenups have become popular under the pretext that if the marriage works out, the prenup is irrelevant.
