A postnuptial agreement is a legal document made between spouses after they have married. Similar to a prenuptial agreement (which is made before marriage) a postnuptial agreement outlines how assets, debts and other financial matters will be divided in the event of divorce or separation.

 

What can Postnuptial Agreements Include?

Postnuptial agreements can cover various aspects of marital life, such as property division, spousal support, inheritance rights, and other financial arrangements. The agreement can also address non-financial matters, like responsibilities during marriage or arrangements for children.

 

Why would I need a Postnuptial Agreement?

The reasons for entering into a postnuptial agreement can vary. Sometimes couples will enter into these agreements to clarify financial matters or address changes in circumstances that have occurred since marriage. These arrangements can provide important clarity and mitigate disputes in the event of a divorce or separation.

Each party needs to have independent legal advice when accepting the terms of a postnuptial agreement. The agreement must also be entered into voluntarily and without coercion or duress.

To discuss whether a postnuptial agreement may be advisable in your circumstances, we invite you to book a consultation with one of our family lawyers at Rose & Rose HPLP.
