A Prenuptial agreement (also referred to as antenuptial or premarital agreement) is a contract between a couple prior to getting married that becomes effective upon marriage. The purpose of the contract is to settle the rights and obligations of the parties with respect to assets, liabilities, and can also include provisions for alimony, division of property, inheritence, etc. in the event of a divorce.
A postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial agreement except the parties enter into the contract after they are married. The contents of a postnuptial agreement are the same as a prenuptial agreement and can include provisions for alimony, division of property, assets, liabilities, etc. in the event of a divorce.
