Illinois Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements Can Protect Your Rights

In Illinois, the laws surrounding prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements are constantly changing. Our attorneys stay up-to-date on these complex laws as it concerns many of our clients who have much at stake. Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements create an avenue for couples to discuss how they would like to resolve any potential marital issues in the future.

A prenuptial agreement should be carefully crafted with an individual’s goals in mind. If one spouse is remarrying and has children from a previous marriage, a prenuptial agreement can protect inheritance rights and ensure the assets and property from the previous marriage will be distributed to the designated beneficiaries.

Postnuptial agreements offer the same protections as prenuptial agreements. The only difference is that postnuptial agreements are created after marriage. As with any marital contract, it is important to have an experienced attorney review it and address all important issues including, child custody, spousal support, and property division.
