What is a Postnup or Postnuptial Agreement?

Postnuptial Agreements

Even though you intend for your marriage to last forever, you cannot help but worry about what would happen to property and assets if you end up divorcing. The stress can negatively impact your marriage, so you need a solution. You might think you cannot protect yourself if you did not create a premarital agreement, but Florida law allows people to enter into postnuptial agreements after marriage. It does not matter if you have been married for a day or decades. As long as your spouse agrees, you can create an agreement to protect your interests in case of divorce. Additionally, such an agreement can outline what will happen to property and assets in the event of death.

You have to make sure you follow the rule of the law when creating an agreement, or the court will not recognize it. Thus, reach out to a postnuptial agreement attorney at our firm to discuss your situation.

What to Include in a Postnuptial Agreement

You can use a postnuptial agreement to settle various matters, including:

  • The division of property and assets
  • The division of debts
  • Living situations during a separation or after divorce
  • Alimony payments

Protect Your Assets With A Postnuptial Agreement

Many Florida residents choose to create a postnuptial agreement due to changing circumstances during a marriage. For instance, if you recently came into a significant inheritance or will get a large sum of money in the future, you can use a postnuptial agreement to designate the funds as personal instead of marital property.

What if you were wealthy when you got married but did not create a prenup? In this instance, you can create a postnuptial agreement to protect the wealth you had when entering into the marriage. As long as your spouse agrees, you can keep the money separate from the marital property.

First, contact a postnuptial agreement attorney to discuss your situation. Then, the attorney can explain how you can protect your wealth and other assets in case of divorce.

Protect Your Business

If you started a business after you were married, it is considered a marital asset. Thus, your spouse will be entitled to his or her share if you do not have a valid postnuptial agreement in place. Then, the court will divide the business based on equitable distribution. At that point, you can consider options to divide the business, such as buying out the other party or selling it. Neither is very appealing when you have spent so much time and effort building your business.

Fortunately, you can keep the business separate from the marital assets through a postnuptial agreement. Then, your business will not be impacted when dividing assets after a divorce.

Because your business is such an important asset, you do not want to make any mistakes when creating an agreement. With over 60 years of combined experience, our postnuptial agreement attorneys can assist in creating a document that meets the legal requirements.

Provide For Children From A Previous Marriage

If you have children from a previous marriage, you want to ensure they are properly provided for when you pass away. A postnuptial agreement attorney can help you draft a document to protect your children’s inheritance and property rights. Without such a document, you run the risk of your spouse disinheriting your children after you pass away. Thus, a postnuptial agreement can protect them while allowing your family to avoid litigation.

Shield Yourself From Your Spouse’s Actions

If your spouse has a gambling problem, drug addiction, or lots of debt, you could end up being responsible for his or her poor financial decisions. However, you can shield yourself by creating a postnuptial agreement to allocate the debt. Then, you will not have to worry about legal action against you for your spouse’s financial misdeeds.
