When Do I need a Prenuptial Agreement?
Marriage is not only a declaration of love between two people, but it also results in the merging of assets. Unfortunately, when a relationship is headed toward divorce, one or both parties may suffer serious financial ramifications. If you or your spouse has a substantial amount of assets, are expecting an inheritance, or entering another marriage, it may be in your best interest to sign a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

What a Prenuptial Agreement Can Do
A prenuptial agreement is made prior to a marriage. Each soon-to-be spouse figures out how they will divide their assets in the event of a divorce or death.
While many individuals think establishing a prenuptial agreement is only for the very wealthy, it is also suitable for many others. While we all hope and wish for successful marriages, many of them end in divorce. Being realistic and cautious before entering into the married state can save you many headaches in the future.
Establishing a prenuptial agreement can help you do the following:
- Delineate your responsibilities and financial rights during the marriage
- Protect yourself from debt
- Agree on how your assets will be divided in the event of divorce
- Pass property to children from a previous marriage
If you wish to set up a prenuptial agreement before you walk down the aisle, our skilled Indianapolis divorce lawyers at Keffer Hirschauer LLP can help you draft an agreement. We will handle all the details for you and make sure your prenuptial agreement is clear and easy to understand. We believe that it is better to be safe than sorry.

What are Postnuptial Agreements?
In comparison to a prenup, a postnuptial agreement is made after a marriage. If a couple acquires a significant amount of assets or debts since getting married and have new wishes about how their assets need to be handled in the event of a divorce or death, then creating a postnuptial agreement makes sense.
These are legal documents that place provisions in place regarding multiple factors, including the following:
Postnuptial agreements must be approved by the court in order to be considered valid. At Keffer Hirschauer LLP, our Indianapolis divorce lawyers have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you formulate an amicable postnuptial agreement designed to keep both parties happy.
