Marital agreements have become a lot more common in recent years, as couples look to protect themselves and their possessions in the event they choose to divorce. There are two types of these agreements: pre-nuptial and post-nuptial. Both of them perform the same essential function; providing a pre-existing contract for complex issues to help a divorce proceed smoother and more efficiently.

A pre-marital agreement is signed before the couple legally enters their marriage by signing their marriage certificate. In many cases, these agreements are sought by those entering a marriage with significant assets to their name, or when entering a second marriage with children from their previous one.
Post-nuptial agreements are signed after the couple has entered into a marriage. These are frequently used by couples who have entered into a marriage and one or the other has suddenly started demonstrating wild financial irresponsibility, such as accruing an abundance of credit card debt very quickly.
