In some circumstances, a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement can be essential to protect premarital assets, inherited assets, business interests, investments, or to protect the interests of children from a previous marriage. Yet if handled poorly, a prenuptial agreement can cause friction between prospective spouses and start a marriage off on a sour note.
For these reasons, Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements should be planned well in advance of marriage, and should be handled with sensitivity, tact and care.
