Prenuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement can help to protect your interests before you get married. A post-nuptial agreement is a similar type of agreement that can provide the same protection but is created during your marriage.
Either type of agreement can help you facilitate an open, honest discussion with your spouse about the future and your wishes. The attorneys at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, in Staten Island, can help you through the conversation. We will work to create a prenup or post-nuptial agreement that is tailored to your needs and goals as a couple.
What Is Covered in a Prenuptial or Post-Nuptial Agreement?
Every agreement is customized to the couple that enters it. The terms will depend on your financial situation, your history and your goals for the future.
When deciding what elements are essential to your agreement with your spouse, consider questions such as:
- How will property be divided when you get divorced? Should certain assets and investments remain separate? Are there debts that should remain separate?
- What will happen if one spouse passes away?
- Are there children from a previous marriage? Is there specific property that should remain in one family?
These are just a few of the questions that can be resolved through a prenup or post-nuptial agreement. It is important to note that these types of agreements cannot be used to waive maintenance, and the agreement cannot affect child support or custody arrangements.
