Success may indicate it's time for a postnup

Many younger couples get married before becoming successful. If you are one of them, marriage may have taken place during or right after college and before finding the perfect career. When just starting out, protecting assets and wealth was probably the last thing on your mind. However, if you are now successful and concerned with how a divorce may impact your financial well-being, it may be time to consider a postnuptial agreement.

A postnuptial agreement is the same type of contract as a prenuptial agreement, but just entered into after marriage. Like its premarital counterpart, a postnuptial agreement can address the same issues related to asset and debt division as well as alimony and child support. For individuals that have become quite successful, drafting a postnuptial agreement can alleviate much of the stress related to asset protection in divorce.

Since postnuptial agreements can cover roughly the same aspects as a prenuptial agreement, they can be used to protect a business or professional license. These assets can be subject to division during divorce if not addressed through a pre or postnuptial agreement. Using these contracts to outline how these valuable assets are to be treated in divorce can protect an individual?s current and future financial well-being.

Many individuals consider postnuptial agreements when in their second or third marriage. This may be especially true for individuals that have children from a past marriage. A postnuptial agreement can help protect the assets one wishes to leave their children in the event of death.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are no longer considered taboo. If you own a successful business, have children from a previous marriage or hold a valuable professional license, you may want to speak with an attorney about drafting a comprehensive and effective postnuptial agreement.
