A postnuptial agreement is a contract formed after a couple gets married. It purposes in settling affairs and assets in case a divorce arises. It contains similar contents to a premarital agreement but also lists provisions for property distribution and alimony. The primary difference between the two is that a postnuptial agreement can be executed after a marriage has begun.
If you are already married, a divorce attorney can help you draft this agreement based on how you desire your assets to be divided in the case of a divorce. Its purpose is to give both parties peace of mind that can solve any of their concerns involving divorce. These are not mandatory agreements but can be beneficial for those who are unsure whether the marriage will last.
When is a postnuptial agreement beneficial?
At the first sign of a rocky relationship, it could be beneficial to obtain a postnuptial agreement. This agreement can be made between the couple if they have reason to believe that their marriage could be in trouble. It is for individuals who are not sure it "forever" is a possibility for their marriage.
