A post-marital agreement is a contract outlining how a couple’s property must be divided in the event that the marriage ends, either through legal separation, divorce, or death. Providing the same benefits as a prenuptial agreement, it is becoming increasingly common for married couples to create these agreements to set clear expectations and eliminate any misunderstandings.

Our experienced Beverly Hills postnuptial agreement lawyers can assist with the writing and review of post-marital agreements. We invite you to contact our firm to speak with one of our attorneys about how we can assist you with the process.

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 following:
  • Was there a full disclosure of assets?
  • Was the agreement fair, where each contribution to the marriage has been considered?
  • 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.
