What Is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial or post-marital agreement is a written, signed, and notarized document that outlines responsibilities, financial allowances, and other agreed-upon decisions by couples after they marry. Like a prenuptial agreement, the record acts as a binding contract of wishes to be carried out when one spouse dies or the couple ends up divorced. While the discussion of a postnuptial agreement can seem uncomfortable, it acts as insurance in an unpredictable future.
Why Work With Hudson Family Law on a Postnuptial Agreement?
Similar to a will, a post-marital agreement is a written document usually composed by a practicing attorney with appropriate signatures and official notarization recognized in a court of law. However, there are some circumstances where a judge may rule against part or an entire postnuptial agreement if the process isn’t followed correctly. For this reason, it is critical that couples seek the professional help of a qualified attorney like Lise Hudson at Hudson Family Law to avoid mistakes that could void a postnuptial agreement, such as:
- Improper notarization
- Incorrect signing or signatures
- Missing reports of assets, debts, or bank accounts
- A spouse that was coerced into signing
- A spouse that did not have legal help through the process
