What should be included in my prenuptial or postnuptial agreement?

Drawing up a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can be extremely valuable should you and your spouse ever decide to separate. Each agreement serves as a way of delineating the rights of both parties regarding the financial aspects of a marriage and can prevent unnecessary heartache.

The biggest difference between these two agreements is when they are created. Prenuptial agreements are, naturally, drawn up before the marriage, while postnuptial agreements happen after.

The most common issues dealt with include:

  • Spousal support
  • Property division
  • The classification of marital and separate property
  • The making of wills and trusts
  • Death benefits
  • Determining how the agreement will be interpreted

Also of importance is that child custody arrangements cannot be included in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Such agreements are for financial and asset-related issues only.
