Mid Marriage Agreements In Monmouth County

What is a Mid Marriage Agreement?

If you have been married and you have incurred a great amount of wealth through a business or in some other way then you may want to protect these assets from division in the case of divorce. While a premarital agreement allows a couple to come up with stipulations in the event that they later face a divorce, a mid-marriage agreement is for those that have already entered into marriage and now recognize there may be areas that they need to address. A postnuptial agreement is an agreement that can allow you to keep your assets if you and your spouse were to seek dissolution of your marriage. Additionally if your spouse incurred a large amount of debt that you do not want to be responsible for in the case of divorce then you will benefit from a postnuptial agreement which will be able to protect you from incurring this debt.

Postnuptial vs. Prenuptial

A postnuptial agreement is a document very similar to a prenuptial agreement in that it is custom built to protect those involved from receiving unwanted debt incurred by their spouse or from losing their assets in the case of divorce. The major difference between these two agreements is that while a prenuptial agreement is signed before a marriage takes place, a postnuptial agreement is signed after the marriage has taken place. Having the opportunity to form and sign a mid-marriage agreement can be a substantial benefit to many individuals.

Going into a marriage a couple can be full of hope but for those that are already married, you recognize the reality of how hard it can be to keep a relationship together. There may be issues that you didn't address at the beginning that you know recognize to be a potential problem. A mid-marriage agreement can also allow a couple to bring up important issues that they may have felt too uncomfortable to talk about before. It can open the doors for communication and help both parties understand where the other one is coming from.
