Getting married is an exciting life event. But in today’s society with a rise in blended families, later in life marriages, and high divorce rates, more couples are choosing to protect their futures with a prenuptial (antenuptial) agreement. A prenuptial (before the marriage) agreement can determine spousal rights to property in the event of death or divorce. For couples who are already married, Minnesota law provides for a postnuptial (after the marriage) agreement.
Commonly thought to be only for the rich and famous, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be an essential planning tool for those with significant property or children from other relationships. If you are concerned about protecting your children or property contact attorney Jennifer R. Lewis Kannegieter to discuss whether a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is right for you.
