A post nuptial agreement is drafted after a couple has already gotten married as opposed to a prenuptial agreement which is entered into prior to the couple getting married. One might enter into a post nuptial agreement if before the marriage there was no prenuptial agreement but after the marriage the parties want to specify what happens to their assets in case of a divorce. This may be necessary if the couple is contemplating divorce or separation.

Need a Post Nuptial Agreement?

Post nuptial agreements vary widely depending upon the needs and interests of the parties. Just as prenuptial agreements do, post nuptial agreements often outline how marital and separate property and possessions will be divided if the marriage ends as a result of divorce or death and often include provisions for:

  • Ownership and the right to pensions and retirement funds
  • Protecting inheritances and heirlooms received during the marriage
  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Ownership of real property, bank accounts and businesses owned by either spouse or both spouses

As with prenuptial agreements, New York has strict rules which must be followed in order for the agreement to be enforceable.
