After you are married, you are free to come to a reasoned Postnuptial Agreement with your spouse about what would happen if you divorce or if one of you die. If you do not, whether you like it or not, state rules and family court judges write that agreement for you. You are free to opt out of these automatic rules by arriving at an agreement reflecting your values, morals, and beliefs. Your reasoned postnuptial agreement (or sometimes called an Antenuptial Agreement) can reflect your true wishes, rather than the cookie-cutter system the state imposes on those who don’t bother.
Investing in a reasoned, agreement, as to divide assets, should the marriage end in divorce and what rights exist should one person die avoids expensive, devastating conflict. Especially if you have children, any steps that can reduce the disputes in a divorce is a wise investment of time and money. Investing in a Postnuptial Agreement allows a couple to talk about finances, documents agreements and help ensure each person has a complete understanding of the other person’s financial expectations.
