Post-Nuptial Agreements

Family Law Representation in Encino, CA

After you have gotten married, you may wish to enter into a post-nuptial agreement. This agreement varies from a pre-nuptial agreement and holds a slightly different purpose. When the wedding is over and life settles down around you, you may find yourself looking to settle different affairs including assets and financial situations. These contractual agreements are put into place to help protect what is rightfully yours in the event of a separation or divorce. Post-nuptial agreements can be obtained by both heterosexual married couples and same-sex married couples or those who are in a civil union recognized by the state of California. If you have questions about obtaining an agreement, do not hesitate to work with a dedicated attorney from Cutter & Lax.

There may be many different reasons that couples wish to enter into a post-nuptial agreement, but almost every agreement is brought forth with the acceptance that in the event that something were to happen to the other spouse, or the couple decides to divorce, assets would be distributed as they wished. Rights in a divorce case are one of the most viable reasons for couples to obtain post-nuptial agreements, especially if the couple is considered of high net worth. Marital assets, custody and alimony may not necessarily be brought into the contract, but could help expedite that process of divorce and would later be written into the final divorce decree.

As a couple gets deeper into their marriage, their needs may change. Obtaining a post-nuptial agreement may be best for you if you and your partner have had children or are looking to make changes to a pre-nuptial agreement. Some therapists and marriage counselors may even advise you on making a post-nuptial agreement as a means to clear the air about finances and be a safety net in the event that you do end up splitting. Other couples may take into consideration children from previous marriages and ensure that their futures are protected by obtaining a post-nuptial agreement. Whatever your excuse for obtaining an agreement, you can work with an attorney from Cutter & Lax.
