Postnuptial agreements are just what they sound like. Instead of being drafted and signed before a marriage, they are drafted during a marriage — often to save the marriage. So called ‘postnups,’ while much less common than ‘prenups,’ are gaining in popularity. Postnuptual agreements are usually drafted to settle financial issues causing friction between spouses. A postnuptial or mediated agreement can often help save a married couple’s relationship. Many marriages have been saved just by the process of working on their postnuptial agreement. The in-depth pen to paper financial outlining of ‘who, what and when’ often transforms into a therapeutic positive exercise for most couples. The peaceful and clarifying end result of an agreement can be pretty cool too! Call a family law attorney for practical and legal advice in the drafting your postnup agreement.
