A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, except it is entered into during the marriage. It can be used to protect one spouse’s family business, characterize property as separate or community, protect children from a prior marriage or allocate debts of the couple. During a marriage it can help to set expectations and may reduce conflict.
In postnuptial agreements, full disclosure and transparency are extremely important as is the need for each party to the agreement to be represented by an experienced family law attorney to ensure they fully understand the terms of the agreement they are signing. The attorneys at Travers & Travers have the experience to guide you through the steps of negotiating your postnuptial agreement.
