Postnuptial agreements are valuable later in life

Unlike prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements are entered into at some point during a marriage. There is no rule as to who should have one or at what point they should get one, but certain situations may warrant a postnuptial agreement more than others. Individuals finding themselves in a second marriage later in life and concerned with their financial future may stand to benefit most from a postnuptial agreement.

Money is commonly cited as one of the most argued issues during a marriage. It is for this reason that many attorneys stress the importance of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. By addressing commonly argued issues, these agreements can alleviate some of the stress related to financial tension during a marriage.

A well-drafted postnuptial agreement can cover the same aspects as any prenuptial agreement, but is entered into after marriage. Some of the issues commonly addressed in a postnuptial agreement are asset ownership, property division and probate.

Older couples that are more established and nearing retirement may benefit most with a postnuptial agreement. This may be truer for individuals in a second or third marriage and with substantial assets. With the use of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, aging couples can protect their financial well-being by addressing issues that may potentially impact their retirement.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are not only for wealthy individuals. They are useful tools designed to protect the interests and financial future of both spouses. By working with an experienced attorney, an effective and enforceable prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may offer couples peace of mind and financial protection.
