Is a post-nuptial agreement right for me?

A post-nuptial agreement is similar to a pre-nuptial agreement except it is executed after the marriage takes place instead of before.

It is a written contract that allows the couple to determine how their property and assets acquired during the marriage will be divided in the event of a divorce down the road.  It can protect a couple that is struggling with financial differences to keep their marriage intact – it makes sure that what you have is protected if the marriage does not work out.

When a post-nuptial agreement is done correctly, both parties will benefit.  When creating this type of agreement, both parties must be honest about what they have otherwise it will nullify the contract.

If you have questions about a post-nuptial or pre-nuptial agreement, contact a Riverside Family Law attorney who has knowledge about this family law issue and will make sure you come up with an agreement that works best for you.
