Signing a Postnuptial Agreement

If you got married and decided to forgo the prenuptial agreement, you are not alone. Many couples bypass this step of marriage, however, it is one of the most important ways to protect yourself and your assets should your marriage come to an end. However, even if you did not sign a prenuptial agreement, you may still be able to protect yourself by the use of a postnuptial agreement. 

If you are considering a postnuptial agreement, contact a Miami family law lawyer. 

Postnuptial agreements are useful when spouses acquire wealth after you tie the knot - typically, if the spouse starts a business or if income changes significantly - and if a spouse commits adultery. Being misaligned when it comes to money is difficult, making the need for a postnuptial agreement even greater. Communication and compromise should happen in a marriage, but unfortunately, that is not always the case. 

If your spouse has a large amount of debt stacked up against them, a postnuptial agreement that has been reviewed by a Miami divorce lawyer can protect you. Should you split up, the agreement will help ensure you have protection and need not be responsible for taking care of some of the debt owed by your spouse.
