Prenuptial agreements used to be just for the rich and famous. No longer. Sadly, half of marriages end in divorce. Most people contemplating marriage resist such a discussion, but if you are close enough to contemplate marriage, no discussion should be off-limits. At the least, should you be contemplating marriage and have assets or children from a previous marriage, you should consult an attorney to understand your rights and responsibilities, and understand those of your future (or current) spouse. For most people, it can be a smart discussion to have. At the law firm of Patricia L. Brown & Associates, we help people entering first marriages, second marriages and subsequent marriages who are interested in learning more about prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. For a very modest investment of resources, you can save a lot of grief later on.

What Is the Difference Between a Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement?
As skilled prenuptial agreement attorneys, we can educate you about your options. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are essentially the same. The main difference is that a prenuptial agreement is established prior to the marriage and a postnuptial agreement during the marriage. Couples who begin to accumulate material goods, spouses who come into an inheritance, couples with a difference in earning capacity should all consider prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Who Needs a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement?
Nearly every person can benefit from a prenup, in the event the marriage ends in divorce. A prenuptial agreement provides directives for many items that are included in a divorce, including property division, business division and spousal support. People who can benefit from a prenuptial agreement include those who:
- Are entering into a second marriage
- Have children from a previous marriage
- Own businesses or professional practices
- Have independent assets, property or wealth
If your marriage does end in divorce, a prenuptial agreement can ensure a smoother divorce process and keep you out of litigation.
