Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys in Orlando

A postnuptial agreement is in essence the same thing as a prenuptial agreement; the only difference is timing.  A postnuptial agreement is signed during the marriage rather than before the marriage.

A postnuptial agreement can be a favorable option for a person who does not want to end their marriage, but for whatever reason, needs the certainty of knowing what will happen to the parties' assets, debts, and income should a divorce occur prior to moving forward in a strong marital relationship.

Like prenuptial agreements, disclosure is a key component to postnuptial agreements.  For the document to withstand a challenge, there should be full disclosure of all assets, liabilities, and income information.  There should be no evidence of coercion or duress, and the document should be a negotiated, arm's length transaction.
