How They Work
A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract that lists the assets and debts each person has before the marriage. It establishes what each person's property rights will be if the marriage ends in divorce or if one spouses dies before the other.
In Harrisburg, Hershey and throughout Pennsylvania, prenuptial agreements require full and fair disclosure of assets. If the agreement is not prepared correctly, it will not hold up in court. That is why you need a knowledgeable attorney to help you.
A prenuptial agreement can address alimony and child support. In most cases, the alimony specifications in pre- or postnuptial agreements are not modifiable in the event of divorce. However, child support may be modified.
Postnuptial agreements can be drafted at any point in the marriage. Many people use them for estate planning reasons. If someone is entering a second or third marriage, for example, the agreement can be used to preserve assets for their children.
