What is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial agreement, often referred to as a "postnup," is a legal document created by spouses after they have tied the knot. This agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of each party in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. While it may not be the most romantic aspect of marriage, a postnuptial agreement can provide clarity and financial security for both spouses.
One of the key distinctions between a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement is the timing of their creation. A prenuptial agreement is crafted before marriage, whereas a postnuptial agreement is established after the wedding has taken place. Couples may choose to create a postnup for various reasons, such as changes in financial circumstances, business ownership, or the birth of children.
What Does a Postnuptial Agreement Cover?
Postnuptial agreements are versatile legal instruments that can address a wide range of issues. We can help you customize an agreement that suits your specific needs. Here are some common areas covered by postnuptial agreements:
- Asset Division: Clearly define how assets, including property, investments, and business interests, will be divided in the event of a divorce. Address any separate property brought into the marriage and how it will be treated.
- Spousal Support (Alimony): Outline the terms and conditions of spousal support in the event of a divorce. Specify the amount, duration, and conditions under which alimony may be awarded.
- Debt Allocation: Clearly state how debts incurred during the marriage will be divided. Protect each spouse from assuming the other's pre-existing debts.
- Child Custody and Support: Address matters related to child custody, visitation, and support.
- Provide a framework for decision-making regarding the upbringing of the children.
- Financial Responsibilities: Establish financial responsibilities during the marriage, such as budgeting, spending limits, and joint financial goals.
- Business Interests: Determine the treatment of business assets and interests in the event of a divorce. Protect the continuity and success of a family business.
