Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in Carmel, IN
Serving Couples Throughout Indianapolis & Central Indiana
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, also known as "premarital" and "postmarital" agreements, are lawful contracts between prospective or current spouses that determine how assets and liabilities will be divided in the event of a divorce or death. They provide a level of financial security and predictability that would otherwise be up to the court’s discretion.
Unfortunately, these agreements often carry a certain stigma, frequently perceived as showing mistrust or lack of commitment in a relationship. However, this viewpoint is fundamentally flawed. Rather than signaling doubt, these agreements promote open communication about financial matters and set clear expectations that can reduce potential future conflicts.
At Roberts Means Roncevic Kapala LLC (RMRK), our legal team is well-versed in Indiana law regarding these contracts. We can help you negotiate, draft, or review your agreement to ensure it is equitable, comprehensive, and conforms to legal requirements.

Benefits of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
