Prenuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements - Lombard, Illinois Attorneys
Most people planning a wedding have a lot on their plate. After all, it is the next major step most couples take to secure their relationship. So why think about the chances of getting a divorce, before you’ve even had time to do the “Chicken Dance” and eat some cake.
However, there are many reasons you may want to speak to an attorney first. Some reasons include blended families, children from prior relationships, and protection of personal or individual assets, protection of inheritance or business interests, debt issues, and many other plans. Nowadays, it is actually smart for couples to speak with an attorney about the benefits of a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement.
A prenuptial agreement, also known as a prenup or premarital agreement, is an agreement before the marriage of how to divide assets, or provide for support. A postnuptial agreement is an agreement after the marriage has already taken place of how to divide assets, or provide for support.

Benefits of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements- Lombard Attorneys
With the rise in divorce and subsequent marriages and blended families, couples not only have to consider protecting their assets, but they must also keep in mind the benefits a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement can have. For instance, you may want your children from a previous marriage to inherit a family owned business or real estate property.
A prenuptial agreement can specify exactly who gets what before you tie the knot, which could protect or serve children or save you costly litigation in the future. Once you are married, you and your spouse can then agree to create a postnuptial agreement. Postnuptial agreements are designed to protect assets and outline marital property, alimony, child support and custody, and can also include the protection of property owned, before and after marriage.
