What Is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial agreement provides directives for how couples will divide property, apportion debts, and handle other financial matters in the event of divorce. Married couples can create a postnuptial at any time. Postnuptial agreements must be highly specific. Otherwise, they might not be enforceable.
What Are the Benefits of a Postnuptial Agreement?
At Conner & Roberts, Pllc, we understand that many married couples may feel they do not need to establish a postnuptial agreement. After all, they are happily married, and that does not seem likely to change. So, what is the point?
Postnuptial agreements can benefit couples in various ways:
- Fostering important communication about their financial expectations and goals. In certain cases, open dialogues about assets and property can strengthen the trust spouses feel in one another.
- Helping them avoid drawn-out divorce litigation. The terms of the postnuptial agreement can settle key issues in advance, making divorces simpler than they might be otherwise.
- Protecting assets and ensuring support. The provisions of an agreement can designate who owns assets and property. Additionally, these provisions can outline what should happen with child support and alimony.
- Settling disputes about shared businesses in divorce. Without a postnuptial agreement, determining who owns a business or whether a spouse ought to be compensated for their investment or interest in a company can be difficult.
When to Create a Postnuptial Agreement
There is no wrong time to create a postnuptial agreement. Tennessee law allows married couples to institute them at any point. However, there are a few situations in which creating an agreement could be more urgent.
These include when a spouse:
- Has children from another marriage.
- Receives an inheritance.
- Has been unfaithful, or the marriage has been rocky.
- Pauses or alters their career to care for children.
- Starts a business or invests in one with their marriage partner.
