Postnuptial Agreements


What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

Similar to a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is a legal contract established between spouses during their marriage. It outlines how assets, debts, and spousal support will be handled in the event of a future divorce.

Key Issues Addressed

A well-drafted postnuptial agreement can address various matters:

  • Asset and Debt Division: Define how marital and separate property will be divided in a divorce.
  • Spousal Support: Determine the terms of spousal support, if any, should a divorce occur.
  • Inheritance Protection: Safeguard inherited assets or family businesses from becoming marital property.
  • Debt Management: Outline how existing or future debts will be handled during a separation.

When is a Postnuptial Agreement Beneficial?

  • Changing Financial Circumstances: If your financial situation has significantly changed since marriage, a postnuptial agreement can provide clarity.
  • Business Ownership: Protect a business or its assets from becoming marital property.
  • Inheritance Concerns: Ensure future inheritances remain separate property.
  • Blended Families: Provide clarity on asset distribution, especially if there are children from prior relationships.
