What Is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that a couple can enter into after they are already married.
This document outlines the rights and responsibilities of each spouse during a divorce, a child custody dispute, or any other legal proceeding that may impact the couple.
A postnuptial agreement can cover a wide range of issues, such as:
- How property will be divided in a divorce
- How assets will be divided in the case of a child custody dispute
- How alimony or spousal support will be awarded in a divorce
- How debts and/or other financial obligations will be paid in a divorce
- Whether a spouse will receive financial support or any other benefits
- Any other rights or obligations that the couple wishes to outline in their agreement
Benefits of a Postnuptial Agreement
A postnuptial agreement can help protect your financial and legal rights if you are going through a divorce, a child custody dispute, or any other legal proceeding.
Some of the benefits of a postnuptial agreement include:
- Protecting your assets
- Ensuring that your spouse does not gain any rights to your property
- Ensuring that you are not responsible for any debts that your spouse acquired during the marriage
What Is Considered a Valid Postnuptial Agreement?
If you and your spouse wish to enter into a postnuptial agreement, the agreement must be in writing and must be signed by both parties.
It is important to remember that a postnuptial agreement is only valid if it is fair and reasonable when it is reviewed by a judge during a divorce or a child custody case.
A postnuptial agreement is considered to be fair and reasonable if both spouses were given full disclosure of their assets and debts before the agreement was signed and the agreement is not unfair or unreasonable.
