What Is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that is entered into by a married couple. These agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are created after the couple is already married. Like prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements can be used to outline how certain issues will be resolved in the event of a divorce.
Postnuptial agreements can address a wide range of issues, including:
- How property will be divided in a divorce
- Whether spousal support will be paid and how much
- How marital debt will be divided
- How certain assets will be managed during the marriage
- How certain assets will be distributed upon the death of one spouse
Postnuptial agreements can be used to protect the interests of both spouses. For example, if one spouse has a significant amount of debt, a postnuptial agreement can be used to protect the other spouse from being responsible for that debt in the event of a divorce. Similarly, if one spouse has a business, a postnuptial agreement can be used to protect that business from being divided in a divorce.
