pre and post nuptial agreements Archives

Is it time for you to sign a postnuptial agreement?

The benefits of having a prenuptial agreement on file are clear. Regardless your financial situation, a prenuptial agreement will make divorce -- if it becomes necessary in your case -- far easier, faster, cheaper and less stressful. However, what can already-married couples do now to receive these same benefits if they don't have a prenup on file?

How signing a prenup can be beneficial for a young professional

Many who marry young and have little to no assets to their name would never think twice about drafting a prenup before marrying. For one, they believe that their love story is meant to last.

Relationship experts argue couples have more to lose from not signing a prenup than they might think.

Understanding the difference between prenups and postnups

Asking your future spouse to sign a prenuptial agreement right before you're set to walk down the aisle can cause conflict at what's supposed to be an optimistic time. While the thought of asking your significant other to sign either a prenup or postnup might make you cringe, if it has to be done, there are pros and cons to pursuing both.

Describing and Quantifying Intellectual Assets In Prenups

Engaged? Why You May Want A Prenup.

In 1960, the average age at which U.S. men and women married was 22 and 20 repsectively. Today, many people are delaying or foregoing marriage altogether. This seems to be especially true in New York City where first-time city dwellers are among the oldest in the country with the majority of them tying the knot between age 30 and 34.

How do you discuss a prenup with your soon-to-be spouse?

When two people are planning to get married, the last thing they probably want to think about is divorce. However, ignoring the possibility of divorce can be a costly mistake if you or your partner is bringing significant assets into a marriage.
