Understanding the Benefits of a Pre or Postnuptial Agreement

While many people tend to have negative connotations associated with prenuptial agreements (and the lesser known postnuptial agreements), these agreements can actually have a number of benefits for individuals and the marriage as a whole. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are not just for the very wealthy—they can help protect the interests and assets of any individual entering into a marriage. These agreements are essentially contracts that denote how various property and assets will be divided or how child custody and/or support will be granted in the event of divorce or death.

The Albany prenuptial and postnuptial agreement attorney at Gautsche Law Group P.C. can help you determine whether such an agreement might benefit you. We evaluate each unique situation before providing you with the personalized advice and legal services you need.

What Can Be Decided in a Pre or Postnuptial Agreement?

Whether you and your future spouse sign a prenuptial agreement before entering into marriage or you both decide to pursue a postnuptial agreement once you have already been legally married, there are many things that can be decided in your agreement.

Some of the most common issues covered in prenuptial and postnuptial agreements include:

  • The division/distribution of assets, including real property
  • The rights of each spouse to various shared property
  • How debts will be distributed in the event of divorce or death
  • The rights of each spouse in regards to a shared business
  • Entitlement to death benefits on the other’s life insurance policy
  • Certain child support/custody issues, such as education, religion, etc.

While New York has not adopted the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act (UPAA), which governs these types of agreements, it does generally consider prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to be valid, so long as it was willingly entered into and signed by both spouses, put in writing, and generally fair.
