Prenuptial & Postnuptial Marriage Agreements

Handled By Our Experienced Family Law Attorneys in Harrisburg, PA

It is becoming more and more common for couples, either before or during a marriage, to enter into a contract agreeing in advance how they would divide their assets and liabilities in the event of a divorce. Such agreements may also deal with other possible circumstances (for example separation) and may address other issues such as custody, care and responsibility of children or other obligations, support, or alimony.

At Caraciolo Law Group, P.C. in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we help you negotiate and draft marriage agreements that protect your interests. Contact our prenuptial agreement attorneys in Harrisburg, PA today at (717) 208-8359.

Prenuptial Agreements in PA

In Pennsylvania, a prenuptial agreement is a formal contract agreed upon by both parties before entering into marriage. A properly drawn and executed prenuptial agreement will be enforceable with respect to the division of property, spousal support, alimony, as well as other contractual issues in case of a future divorce.

It may not be enforceable regarding child custody and child support issues; although, there are provisions available to create enforceable contract provisions in the event a party does not follow otherwise unenforceable portions of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

Prenuptial Agreements Help Prevent Future Problems

Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements do not fit everyone’s idea of a romantic relationship, but they are often effective and very useful tools for couples in addressing important property and emotional issues, and can actually help in facilitating communications in a relationship. In a world where half of all marriages end in divorce (a recent study set the figure at 55 percent), a rational and calm review and attempt to reduce to a written agreement the understanding of both parties about what will happen if problems do occur may be important.

Marriage itself is a contract. Cohabitation, even without marriage, often leads to joint or ambiguous ownership of property. It is certainly easier and less emotionally difficult to resolve how any future disputes will be resolved while partners are still on the best of terms, rather than in bad times.
