A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract between spouses entered into prior to marriage, whereas a Postnuptial Agreement is a contract between spouses entered into after marriage.
The content of each agreement varies widely depending on the spouses’ circumstances. Typically, however, such agreements stipulate how the spouses will resolve financial issues (i.e. child support, spousal support, equitable distribution of marital property, and/or counsel/expert fees) if the spouses separate or divorce. These agreements can also settle what rights, if any, each spouse will have to the other’s estate if one of the spouses dies before the other.
