Before or during a marriage or registered domestic partnership, a couple may desire to enter into an agreement outlining how they would treat property, support and other matters if their marriage or domestic partnership were to later be dissolved.
If you are preparing to marry or register a domestic partnership or are preparing to marry or register a second time, have assets and are concerned about protecting your existing assets in the event discord or disharmony arise, consider whether a prenuptial agreement is appropriate for you. Some people find it best to outline before they marry or register what each spouse/partner’s rights would be if the relationship ends. Planning in this regard provides a degree of certainty to both parties from the outset of their relationship.
Some people may choose to revise an existing prenuptial agreement or to enter into an agreement characterizing property during the marriage/domestic partnership. This would be considered a postnuptial agreement. Spouses/domestic partners may desire to make agreements regarding property, support, or other matters without the expectation of a dissolution of their marriage/domestic partnership.
