Pre & Postnuptial Agreements “Without a pre or postnuptial agreement, you’re opening up your financial future to the influence and potential determination by a third party.” ~Alex Weinberger, CFP®, CDFA® Overview It’s not always easy to discuss money in a relationship, whether before or after the marriage, but doing so can alleviate problems and stress in the long run. A pre or postnuptial contract can minimize financial and emotional tension in an ongoing relationship and/or divorce. Divorcing couples without a contract face a more challenging settlement process that could end in their assets being distributed for them by the courts if they disagree and cannot work together. Prenuptial Agreements A contract between two people, prior to getting married, that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of a divorce or death. Postnuptial Agreements A contract between two people, after the marriage is final, that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of a separation or divorce.
