The Power of a Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement can accomplish many goals. Typically, the purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to define what will be considered separate property in the event the marriage disintegrates. Often, a prenuptial agreement is utilized to protect the inheritance of a spouse’s children from a previous relationship. A prenuptial agreement can also be utilized in situations where one spouse expects to receive a sizeable inheritance, or when each spouse has substantial assets or income of their own, or where one spouse has significantly more assets than the other.

The Power of a Postnuptial Agreement
In a postnuptial agreement, the two partners are already married, and are entering into the postnuptial agreement to plan for death or divorce. The purpose of a postnuptial agreement is to determine how property shall be divided upon dissolution of the marriage through death or divorce. Married couples looking for a postnuptial agreement should contact Welch Law. We can clarify the terms of the postnuptial agreement and ensure that all scenarios have been covered. These agreements work well when both partners have children from the previous marriages because the postnuptial agreement allow a spouse to waive the statutory requirement that the spouse receive a specified share of the other spouse’s estate.
