Pre/Post Nuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract signed by between two people who are planning to
get married. It is a contract which outlines how their assets will be divided if the parties divorce
in the future. Contrary to popular belief, they are not just for wealthy couples and they are not an
indication of mistrust. A prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for anyone who is getting
married and has assets that they care about.

A prenuptial agreement can:
