Pre-nuptial agreements are agreements made before a marriage. Post-nuptial agreements are made after or during the course of the marriage. These agreements can help couples establish rights in properties, assets and spousal support in case of a divorce or separation. In essence, they can help protect a spouse’s separate property rights or solidify a couples’ agreement about the amount and/or duration of spousal support to be paid in case of divorce or separation.
No one goes into a marriage planning for it to fail, but for the right circumstances, a pre-nuptial agreement is like a seatbelt. It is a safety net in the event that the relationship does not last.
These types of agreements are governed by very specific rules and procedures. Believe it or not, signing the agreement on a Tuesday instead of a Monday could invalidate it entirely!
