The Benefits of Post-Marital Agreements
One of the most common reasons for creating a post-marital agreement is
a shift in finances. Often, this is the case when there is a change in
the extended family, a change in the participation in or value of a family
business, of when one spouse is completing a valuable degree. A post-marital
agreement may also function as an important tool to clear up financial
questions after a period of marital conflict, allowing the couple to focus
on resolving other issues.
Determining the Validity of Post-Marital Agreements
The court will examine the contract and consider questions such as the
- Was there a full disclosure of assets?
- Was the agreement fair, where each contribution to the marriage has been
- Was there any coercion during the process of drafting the postnuptial agreement?
The Difference Between Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
There isn’t must difference between the terms that can be included
in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, but the court will scrutinize
a postnuptial agreement under a much higher standard than a prenuptial
one. Thus, it is critical for those seeking a postnuptial agreement to
work with a qualified attorney with ample experience in marital contracts
and their enforcement in nearby courts.
