A postnuptial agreement is an agreement or voluntary
marriage
contract made between couples who are already married regarding the
division of marital property
that is usually formulated in contemplation of
divorce
. However, I think they are a necessary document in marriage and should be used as an insurance plan just like buying a cemetary plot before death. The postnuptial agreement may never have to be used but if it does have to be, then there is already a document in place that defines who gets what after separation. The terms of the postnuptial agreement can cover a wide variety of topics including
children, assets, pet care and visitation
. The postnuptial is designed to help intervene and stop any conflicts and to promote a stronger relationship. It forces the spouses to think about issues about which they may not otherwise talk prior to saying “I do”. With divorce on the rise more so than ever before, a postnuptial agreement can help spouses put a plan in place for their family and reduce arguing over unexpected happenings. Please call
