Postnuptial Agreements

Marriage is a legally binding contract and if you choose to enter into it without a prenuptial agreement, you will become subject to divorce laws in your if you and your spouse choose to divorce. To avoid a situation where possibly vague divorce laws dictate how to divide the marital assets, the new trend is for couples to voluntarily enter into a postnuptial agreement to outline wishes in the event of death or divorce.

A postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial agreement except that it’s signed by the parties after marriage. These agreements can sometimes be used to work out issues that may be causing problems in a marriage and help the couple avoid divorce
