Marital property agreements are agreements that spouses or future spouses enter into that affect the ownership of presently owned property and property acquired in the future. Besides providing a measure of divorce protection in the form of a premarital agreement, a post-marital property agreement can be used as an effective estate-planning tool in that it can maximize step-up basis, simplify asset tracing upon the first spouse to pass, and help to avoid probate.
