The Benefits of a Marital Agreement

Whether you are planning to tie the knot or already took a trip down the aisle, a marital agreement provides a vast array of benefits for both parties. The process of creating an agreement allows couples to learn more about what is most important to each other as they broach topics that people often shy away from.

Here are some other benefits you can enjoy from creating such an agreement:

  • You can classify which is separate property and which is marital property. Without a marital agreement, property and assets will be divided according to state law, which may not be in either party’s best interests.
  • You can protect yourself from your spouse’s debts. If your partner enters the marriage with substantially more debt than you, a marital agreement can ensure it does not become your responsibility in the event of a divorce.
  • The divorce process will go a lot smoother now that one of the most contentious issues is resolved while you and your partner have each other’s best interests at heart.
  • If you have any family heirlooms or a family business you wish to protect, a marital agreement will keep it in your family and prevent it from landing on the chopping block if you get divorced.

Although it might be a difficult topic to approach, creating a marital agreement with your fiancé or spouse can be greatly beneficial for your relationship and future, even if you never have to use it. The better you understand each other, the more secure you will feel in your marriage.

What Makes a Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Valid?

For a written prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to be valid:

  • Both parties must have capacity. This means that both parties must be mentally sound and capable of making long and short-term decisions for their well-being, and must understand the consequences of their actions.
  • A premarital agreement is not enforceable if it was not made voluntarily, or if it was made fraudulently (by failing to disclose property or financial obligations.
  • If the parties agree to eliminate alimony in the event of divorce, but that elimination would make the recipient spouse eligible for public assistance, a court may invalidate that provision and order alimony in an amount needed to avoid that state support.

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can help you establish a more equitable union with your partner. At Full Circle Family Law, we'll represent your best interests and help you protect your rights, ensuring that your pre or postnuptial agreement helps you thrive during your marriage.
