Protecting Spouses With Postnuptial Agreements

A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, except that it is drawn up and signed after a couple is already married. It may sound uncomfortable to discuss the aspects of a potential divorce with your spouse, but it is the responsible thing to do so that agreements about the terms of your divorce can be made while both parties are on agreeable terms, as opposed to angry and spiteful.

Understanding The Benefits Of A Postnuptial Agreement

A postnuptial agreement, like a prenuptial agreement, dictates the terms of a divorce, should one eventually occur. This can be advantageous for many reasons, especially because if a divorce does occur, it can move along smoothly, and quickly. This will save you the time, money, and emotional effort of going to divorce court litigation. A postnuptial agreement will contain information such as how you and your spouse want to divide property, assets, debts, determine spousal support and child custody. It is important to hire an experienced attorney to help you draw up your postnuptial agreement and make sure it is legally sound and encompasses all of the issues that may arise during divorce.
