Prenups and postnups are helpful tools for couples

If you and your spouse were to get a divorce, how do you think the assets would be divided? How would your home be handled? How would the many different banking, retirement and other financial accounts be dealt with? Who would get what? Would there be alimony involved, and who would pay? What about the zillion other issues that can be involved in any divorce?

We roll these questions out not to make you second guess the divorce, but to alert you that there are a lot of issues to deal with and that, in the absence of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, these matters can be left up to state laws or a judge's ruling. And neither of those outcomes may be helpful to you, or even your spouse.

Before you walk down the aisle, consider a prenuptial agreement. And even if you don't get a prenup done, you have the option during your marriage to put together a postnup. A prenuptial agreement can deal with most issues that are inherent to divorce, and a postnuptial agreement is essentially a prenup that is simply signed after the marriage is official instead of before.

If you don't know what to do when considering a prenuptial agreement; or if you want to make a postnup; or if you're considering challenging the legality of the prenup or postnup that you signed, please consider Trullinger & Wenk. We will help you craft the perfect prenup or postnup, or help you tear down the one that was improperly signed.
