Types of Agreements
A prenup is a contract entered into in advance of a marriage setting the intention for the marriage with regard to assets, property, earnings, tax issues, and transactions. It can cover what happens during and after a marriage. At its essence, it opts out of the government’s legislation and allows the couple to make the decisions for their own family.
Prenups are also known as prenuptial agreements, premarital agreements, marital agreements, or antenuptial agreements
Postnups are the same as prenups except that they are entered into after marriage. This is an important distinction because spouses have a fiduciary relationship with each other so the legal requirements are more strict for a prenup than a postnup.
Cohabitation agreements are the same agreement for unmarried couples living together.
