A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two future spouses that allows you to choose how future assets and debts will be characterized. Prenuptial agreements can range from relatively simple (for example choosing a separate property system over Louisiana’s community property regime) to highly complex (for example adopting a hybrid system or contemplating future support obligations in the event of divorce). Current spouses may enter into such agreements – called post-nuptial agreements or marital agreements. However, they may require court approval and are typically can be more complicated than pre-nuptial agreements.
