Although marital agreements are often associated with wealthy couples, people from all walks of life can benefit from this type of contract. A well-crafted agreement can be an effective tool to protect both spouses’ financial interests.
A marital agreement can protect:
- Wealth acquired before the marriage
- The inheritance rights of children from previous relationships
- Family heirlooms and treasured possessions
- Business interests
- Each spouse’s fair share of marital assets
- Spouses from lengthy disputes in the event of a divorce
In addition to determining how assets and debts will be distributed in a divorce, a pre-marital agreement can include information about alimony that will be paid from one spouse to another. However, a prenuptial agreement cannot contain sign away any parental rights or responsibilities or require either spouse to do anything illegal.
A post-nuptial agreement is a contract after a couple has entered into marriage. It outlines the ownership and division of financial assets and debts in the event of a divorce. It, however, cannot limit one spouse’s duty of support to the other where they continue to live together as a married couple.
The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act sets forth all the requirements for a premarital agreement to be enforceable. The law applies to both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Our marital agreements lawyer in Nevada can ensure that your agreement meets all legal requirements and protects your interests.
