Also known as a prenuptial agreement, it is a contract between two people who are intending to marry. The content of the agreement can vary wildly based on the unique circumstances of the couple. The most common provisions contained in these agreements involve the confirmation of the separate property or debts, while other provisions can include:
- How to handle income during the marriage
- Division of property or spousal support in the event of divorce
- Designation of the spouses or other persons in wills and estate planning documents
- Waiver of reimbursement rights
- How to handle separate property upon the death of a spouse
These agreements can be used for a number of reasons. Many couples will create a postmarital agreement, similar in content to a premarital agreement, during periods of marital problems in an attempt to be organized in the event of a divorce. In other cases, these agreements are put in place prior to an attempt to reconcile, making sure there is a fallback plan if divorce becomes necessary.
