How Do Postnuptial Agreements Work?
Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements address similar issues. The main difference is, couples establish a prenuptial agreement before marriage and a postnuptial agreement after they are married.
A postnuptial agreement can protect your finances and property during your marriage or in the event of a divorce. You can also assign specific financial responsibilities to each spouse. For example, you can use a postnup to keep a family business from becoming marital property.
In the event of a divorce, a postnuptial agreement covers issues of property division, spousal support and even debt division. This can help reduce legal issues and expenses during the divorce process.
When Should You Consider A Postnuptial Agreement?
You should consider establishing a postnuptial agreement if:
- You and your spouse are recently married and wish to divide financial assets or responsibilities
- You and your spouse are considering a divorce or legal separation
- One or both of you have children from a previous relationship, and you want to ensure they inherit certain assets
- One party has accrued significant debt, and you wish to protect yourself and your finances from the effects
