In the event that you and your spouse decide to separate, or in the event that one of you becomes deceased, a postnuptial agreement can be used to ensure both you and your spouse's assets and property are properly distributed. While prenuptial agreements remain static following your marriage, postnuptial agreements can change over time. At Fair Cadora, our legal team has drafted dozens of postnuptial agreements and can discuss with you some of the specific reasons to having this agreement in place.

Postnuptial vs. Prenuptial Agreements
While prenuptial agreements are typically put in place prior to a marriage, postnuptial agreements can be established once a marriage is active. During your marriage, you and your spouse may acquire various properties or assets that were not present prior to your marriage and this new agreement may be used to establish ownership of this property.
Neither of these agreements suggest that your marriage is going to end or that your spouse is looking into a divorce. These agreements simply serve as a clear legal means of dividing your martial property and simplifying your life.
Postnuptial agreements often account for major changes in your marriage, such as:
A change in employment status
New financial circumstances
At Fair Cadora, we often view postnuptial agreements as a means of preemptively reducing conflict and protecting both parties in a marriage. Rather than worrying about the division of your assets, you can focus primarily on your relationship and the wellbeing of your family.
