Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements
Experienced Divorce Lawyers in Jackson, Mississippi
Everyone enters into their marriage hoping it will last, but reality dictates that precautions should be taken. Before or after marriage, couples may choose to enter into agreements that designate what property will remain separate property and marital property.
In Mississippi, property acquired during the marriage relationship is presumed to be marital property. Unless that presumption is overcome during divorce proceedings, the property is subject to Mississippi’s equitable distribution of marital property.

The Benefit of Pre-Nuptial Agreements
Pre-nuptial agreements are often made in a second or third marriage where a party has accumulated separately-held property and wants to leave make sure their children are taken care of. Such agreements are very useful in avoiding future disputes that may arise upon divorce or death.
Mississippi courts have commonly recognized and enforced pre-nuptial agreements when they are fairly drafted. This is for the benefit of all those involved, especially in the unfortunate event of a divorce where the distribution of property becomes a complex and contentious issue.
