What Prenuptial Agreements Do

Most people have a fairly clear understanding of what prenuptial agreements can do. Essentially, they outline how financial issues are to be addressed in the event of a divorce or if a spouse dies. To be enforceable, an agreement needs to be clear and unambiguous. The document needs to be customized based on your specific needs, taking into account possible changes in circumstances during the marriage. What Postnuptial Agreements Do

Few people are aware that the same type of agreement that can be made before marriage — a prenuptial agreement — can be made during the marriage — a postnuptial agreement, also referred to as a postmarital agreement.

Postnuptial agreements are critical when one spouse is considering making a major life change that will impact their career or finances. The most common example is if one spouse is planning on giving up their career in order to stay at home and raise the child. In the event of a divorce, that spouse would potentially struggle to get back into the workforce. A postnuptial agreement could address the financial needs that would come along with that struggle.

Postnuptial agreements can also be important to protect a spouse's assets if the other spouse embarks on a risky new business endeavor.
