I am married. Is it too late to sign a marriage contract?

A marriage contract (also referred to as a prenuptual agreement) determines specified issues between a married couple if the marriage comes to an end. These contracts may deal with issues such as spousal support and property.

Once you are married, you and your spouse may still sign a marriage contract.

If you are the party who would like a marriage contract in place and you get married without a marriage contract, your spouse may thereafter decline to sign the contract. Therefore, it may be preferable for these issues to be determined before the marriage takes place.
