Pre/post Nuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in Long Island

A prenuptial agreement is a written contract between two people about to be married. Agreements of this nature are created to outline the terms of marital and separate property distribution. By drafting a prenuptial agreement, people entering into a marriage are fully aware of their economic situation should the marriage end in divorce or legal separation. A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement. The only difference is that a postnuptial agreement is created after two people are married.

Many people find prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to be distasteful, and may take these agreements as a sign of mistrust. However, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can have the exact opposite effect. By having early financial discussions and clearly expressing one another's wishes, intended spouses can eliminate confusion and build a trusting relationship.

Between Marital Property vs. Separate Property

Before two people can draft a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, they must be able to identify what property is considered marital, and what property is considered separate. Marital property includes all assets acquired throughout the duration of the marriage.

These assets include:

  • Real estate property
  • Motor vehicles
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Money within a savings account
  • Furniture
  • Businesses owned by either spouse or both

Separate property is:

  • All possessions acquired before the marriage commenced
  • Property given as a gift by a third party
  • Compensation for personal injuries
  • Inherited property

After the two parties have carefully reviewed their marital and separate assets, they may begin to draft a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. At this time, it is always beneficial to speak with a family law attorney who has experience with drafting pre- and postnuptial agreements. At Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, we can review the agreement to make sure it is in compliance with state laws and we can mediate conflicts that may arise throughout the drafting process.
