Marriage is an exciting thing. That said, because marriage is such an intimate matter, we often don’t want to discuss “business” before stepping into one. However, in today’s day and age, more and more couples are turning to prenuptial agreements before marriage to help protect their assets, should they ever get divorced in the future. That said, what if you’re already married? Is there still a way to protect your assets? Please continue reading and reach out to a knowledgeable prenuptial agreement attorney in Mountainside and from our legal team to learn more about how our legal team can help ensure you and your spouse’s best interests are protected via a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
What is the difference between a postnuptial agreement and a prenuptial agreement?
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements deal with many of the same things. To start, they both work to protect assets. If you want to ensure your luxury vehicle is off limits, should you ever get divorced, you can set a provision for this in either a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. These agreements can also establish provisions for other financial matters, such as whether one spouse will be entitled to alimony in a future divorce.
That said, the primary difference between prenuptial and postnuptial agreements is that prenuptial agreements are drafted prior to a marriage, while postnuptial agreements are drafted exclusively after a couple is already married. Many spouses are fearful of mentioning to their spouse that they’d like to draft a postnuptial agreement, because, let’s face it, it’s not exactly a “romantic” discussion. However, drafting such an agreement may be just what you need to have peace of mind.
