You May Wish to Consider a Postnuptial Agreement

You decided to get married and forgo the prenuptial agreement. The topic can be a sensitive issue, but you also have to consider your own protection. Even if you didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement, there is the option of signing a postnuptial agreement. These may be useful in scenarios such as if your spouse launches a business, if a job or income changes, or if the spouse commits adultery.


There are additional reasons to consider a postnuptial agreement. Money disagreements are a tricky subject. This topic requires communication and willingness to cooperate. If you’re frequently having heated arguments involving money during the marriage, there is a strong possibility that you won’t be able to easily agree on how to divide finances during the divorce.

Speaking of money, if your spouse has significant debt, you may not wish to be liable for it should you decide to go your separate ways. A postnuptial agreement means you’ll have some peace of mind knowing who exactly is responsible for taking care of certain debts if the marriage comes to an end.
