What is a Post-Nuptial Agreement?

A post-nuptial agreement is similar to a pre-nuptial agreement except that it occurs after the marriage has taken place.  Post-nuptial agreements are limited by the same requirements that make a pre-nuptial agreement valid; so, these requirements must be observed.  Though a post-nuptial agreement provides protection, Sagaria Law recommends for its clients to opt for a pre-nuptial agreement instead whenever possible because they have historically been upheld at greater rates in court.  Still, a recent decision in the case of “In re:  Marriage of Burkle” shows that a valid post-marital agreement can be upheld including acknowledgments and statements of intent, particularly if both signed with the assistant of competent counsel.  If you failed to get a “prenup” before you were married, contact Sagaria Law today to schedule an initial consultation and learn how a post-nuptial agreement can protect you.
