Marital Property Agreements
Wisconsin allows couples to enter into a marital property agreement (frequently called “prenups” or “postnups”). Then if a couple divorces, this agreement will contain rules on how property is divided.
If a person has significant assets – including a business, real estate, investments, or retirement accounts – they should understand their rights under Wisconsin law with and without an agreement. There is significant right that these assets will be divided equally in a divorce, an outcome many people believe is unfair.
Our attorneys have vast experience negotiating and drafting both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We help individuals avoid unwanted consequences of Wisconsin property laws long before they arise. Your future financial security is well worth the time and attention.

Customizing Your Agreement
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements aim to protect assets. This gives you control over your financial future in the unfortunate event that the marriage ends in divorce. Agreements can cover:
- Division of assets, including real estate, businesses, stock, life insurance, vehicles, and other valuable items
- Division of debts, such as mortgages or student loans
- Potential awards of spousal support
- Preservation of gifted or inherited assets
If you are already married and have just learned about the benefits of these agreements, it is not too late. A postnuptial agreement can accomplish the same goals as a prenuptial agreement, but it is drafted and signed after your wedding.
