What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

A postnuptial agreement, often known as a postnup, is a legally binding contract by spouses after marriage. This agreement summarizes the division of assets, debts, and other financial aspects during a divorce or separation. While prenuptial agreements are created before marriage, postnuptial agreements serve the same purpose but are established during the marriage.

A postnuptial agreement can cover various aspects, including:

  • Asset Division: Specifying how property and assets will be divided in case of divorce.
  • Debt Allocation: Determining who is responsible for certain debts incurred during the marriage.
  • Spousal Support: Establishing whether one spouse will pay spousal support to the other in case of divorce.
  • Inheritance and Estate Planning: Addressing the distribution of inheritances and future assets.
  • Business Ownership: Outlining how jointly-owned businesses or shares in businesses will be divided.
  • Financial Responsibilities: Clarifying financial responsibilities during the marriage, such as savings and investments.

Do I Need a Postnuptial Agreement?

Deciding whether to create a postnuptial agreement is a personal choice and should be based on your circumstances and goals. Here are some reasons why individuals and couples choose to create postnuptial agreements:

  • Asset Protection: If you have significant assets or anticipate an increase in wealth, a postnuptial agreement can protect your interests by determining how assets are divided in divorce.
  • Debt Management: If one spouse has substantial debts, a postnup can help allocate responsibility for those debts, preventing the other spouse from being burdened with them after divorce.
  • Business Interests: If you and your spouse own a business together, a postnuptial agreement can outline how ownership and control will be managed in case of divorce.
  • Second Marriages: For individuals entering a second marriage, a postnuptial agreement can ensure that assets are protected for children from a previous marriage.
  • Clarity and Communication: Postnuptial agreements can promote open and honest discussions about financial matters within a marriage, fostering better communication and understanding between spouses.
  • Estate Planning: Postnuptial agreements can be an essential part of estate planning, ensuring that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
