Legal Agreements

PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

For many people, a great way to avoid a costly contested divorce is to have a prenuptial agreement in place. Whether you are looking for an agreement covering extremely valuable assets or just a basic agreeement that establishes clear guidelines in the event of a future divorce, Kent Law Group can help you.

What is an antenuptial (or prenuptial) agreement?

An antenuptial – or prenuptial – agreement is one made BEFORE the parties' marriage and address their rights to property and support (though not child support) in the event the marriage should fail. Antenuptial agreements are particularly important for individuals who enter a marriage with significant assets – though ANYONE can have an antenuptial agreement to protect their interest in just about any asset they hold. By executing an antenuptial agreement, the parties agree IN ADVANCE of their marriage how they want to resolve certain questions regarding their assets and support. Both parties must provide full disclosure regarding their financial status (assets, liabilities and income) – and the entire transaction must be free of fraud – for the agreement to be valid. Additionally, the agreement can’t have been signed “under duress,” meaning one party felt forced to go through with signing the agreement in order for the marriage to happen.

POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

A postnuptial agreement is a written contract executed after a couple gets married, or have entered a civil union, to settle the couple's affairs and assets in the event of a separation or divorce. Like the contents of a prenuptial agreement, provisions vary widely but commonly includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce, death of one of the spouses or dissolution of marriage.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements give you a degree of control over the situation, preventing a judge from making this decision for you and preserving the wealth you have accumulated.
