Once you are married, you may wish to enter into a post-nuptial agreement. This agreement varies from a pre-nuptial agreement and holds a slightly different purpose. There are many different reasons why couples may consider creating a post-nuptial agreement. As a couple gets deeper into their marriage, their needs may change and they may want to handle their assets and financial situations differently. The contractual agreements contained in a post-nuptial agreement are designed to help protect assets and provide for one or both spouses in the event of a separation, divorce, or death.
Obtaining a post-nuptial agreement may be best for you if you and your spouse have children, large assets, or are looking to make changes to a pre-nuptial agreement. Some therapists and marriage counselors advise couples to make a post-nuptial agreement in order to clear the air about finances and to create a safety net in the event that the marriage does end.
