What Is A Post-Nuptial Agreement?
A Post-Nuptial Agreement, (much like a Pre-Nuptial Agreement), is an agreement that a married couple enters into in order to define marital property and separate property and protect both parties’ assets. The agreement will lay out what will be considered marital property, even if the parties are already married and have accrued joint marital assets. However, it is easiest to enact a post-nuptial agreement as close to the marriage date as possible. If you delay a number of years, it is a lot more difficult to separate assets that have already been co-mingled. A Post-Nuptial Agreement can also allocate alimony should you ever find yourself in the midst of divorce.
Just like in any agreement involving finances, it is necessary to provide back-up documentation when drafting a post-nuptial agreement. Your attorney will typically refer to this as financial production. Providing these documents for review prior to signing the post-nuptial agreement serves as proof that each party was fully aware of the other’s financial situation, should the agreement of any part thereof be brought into question during a dissolution.
