Marriage, while based on an emotional bond, is also a sort of business contract insofar as it can have drastic financial consequences. Prenuptial agreements are created before the marriage and essentially pre-arranges how assets would be divided and how on-going support would be handled in the event of a divorce. Postnuptial agreements are created for couples who are anticipating going through a divorce but would like to arrange financial terms for after the divorce.

It can provide a guideline of understanding of what finances, debt and assets will be shared and what will stay separate. You may have heard that a prenuptial agreement will favor and protect one side, but an agreement done by an experienced family law attorney will benefit both parties. Couples can expect to pay anywhere from $1,200 to $4,000 to create the agreement.
