What Are Marital Agreements?marital agreement contract

Contrary to popular belief, marital agreements do not signal a lack of faith in the marriage. They are often beneficial to couples who want to get on the same page about their finances and assets and can be obtained before and after the marriage ceremony. If you decide you no longer want the marital agreement enforced, you can have it destroyed. They are especially beneficial in states like California, which is a communal property state, and in which property acquired during the marriage is considered to be held jointly.

The three types of marital agreements are:

  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Postnuptial agreements
  • Marital settlement agreements

Prenuptial agreements are established prior to the marriage, and postnuptial agreements are created after the marriage has already taken place. Both of these agreements are sought to establish conditions for what is to happen to a couple’s property and finances in the event of divorce or if one spouse dies or becomes incapacitated. Additionally, postnuptial marital agreements, such as a transmutation agreement, can change the ownership of specific properties from separately owned to jointly owned.

Marital settlement agreements are made as part of divorce proceedings and deal with issues of spousal support, child support, and child custody.
