Two parties can enter in a premarital agreement (commonly known as a “prenuptial agreement” or “preup”) prior to marriage or a postmarital agreement after two people have married.  A premarital or postmarital agreement can cover a wide range of financial issues, including assets and debts acquired prior to marriage, assets and debts acquired during the marriage, maintenance and/or alimony, real estate holdings, investments, and business interests. Oftentimes parties want to include provisions regarding the custody of their minor children, but even with a written agreement, the court can always overrule the agreement as the court will always look the best interests of the minor children.
