Protect Yourself With A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement
When you are getting married, it can seem like everything is right with the world. However, it may still be important to plan for unexpected future contingencies, like the termination of the marriage. A prenuptial agreement allows you to agree in advance on how assets, such as income, property, and retirement accounts and debts will be (or won’t be) divided in the event of a divorce. You can also agree on whether or not either party will pay spousal support to the other.
From our office in Honolulu, Greg Ryan & Associates, Attorneys at Law, LLLC, helps clients from a variety of backgrounds determine how to structure prenuptial agreements in ways that are most protective and advantageous to them. While you hope to never have a need to enforce a prenuptial agreement, simply preparing and executing it will give you and your spouse a chance to discuss these important financial issues, and it will give you peace of mind knowing that your financial affairs are in order, should the marriage end.
Already Married? Protect Yourself With A Postnuptial Agreement
If you are already married, a postnuptial agreement affords you the same protections as a prenuptial agreement. Spouses who are having difficulties in their relationship, but do not want to divorce, oftentimes opt for a formal agreement regarding how to manage their finances, timesharing and financial arrangements regarding the children, a division of financial assets and debts, and so on. A postnuptial agreement provides both spouses with peace of mind and certainty regarding issues that are important to the family.
