Too late for a prenup? Consider a post-nuptial agreement instead

Most young couples in love rarely give any thought to a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. It could be because neither party possesses any real assets, or it may simply be because love has blinded them to the importance of financial planning for the future. Whatever the case, often these couples regret having prepared for the future but it is never too late to enter into a mutually beneficial agreement. The solution is a solid and well-planned post-nuptial agreement.

New York couples find post-nuptial agreements attractive for many reasons. For example, a couple might decide to open a business together and a postnup is a good way to manage conflicts that might arise in the future. In another example, the couple may already have a prenuptial agreement that they want to modify. A post-nuptial agreement is a great way to approach changing family needs.

Arguably the best reason to consider a post-nuptial agreement is to deal with financial disagreements. These can happen at any time during the course of a marriage and often have devastating results even for couples who are still in love. Having a fair and balanced legal document in place can mitigate these disagreements before they occur. A postnup will also protect the financial interests of both parties if, after all, they decide to get a divorce.

Many New Yorkers still believe prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements are unnecessary when a couple loves and cares about one another. However, it is always a good idea to consider all possible paths a marriage could take and plan accordingly.
