Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial agreements

Post-nuptial agreement is an agreement the husband and wife sign after the date of marriage, which spells out each party’s rights and responsibilities with regards to their assets and liabilities upon a divorce or death of one of the parties. This sort of agreement is not very common, as the parties are already married and there is really no inducement to sign the agreement.

Post Nuptial Agreement

In most aspect a postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial agreement. The major difference between prenuptial and postnuptial agreement is the financial disclosure. The depth of the disclosure is tantamount to that of the disclosure done during the divorce. It is important to hire a knowledgeable postnuptial agreement attorney that will follow all the requirements for drafting an enforceable postnuptial agreement.

Postnuptial Agreement

The purpose of the postnuptial agreement is similar to that of the prenuptial agreement. Parties primarily use such an agreement to protect premarital property or other assets they expect to acquire during marriage. It helps the parties to clarify their financial obligations to each other upon divorce or death.

A postnuptial agreement contemplates that the parties will continue to reside together as husband and wife and is not the same as a marital settlement agreement entered into when the parties are divorcing.

"Helena is a thoughtful and genuine person and an incredibly great and knowledgeable attorney. She always has time to answer all of my questions no matter how petty I thought they were and in a timely manner.

"A coworker recommended Ms. Farber to me, and I hired her to file for a divorce. Even though my husband and I eventually worked it out and the case was dismissed, I wanted to leave a review and note how helpful and encouraging Ms.Farber was through the entire process. She was always available to answer questions."

"Attorney Farber represented me in a paternity lawsuit. She worked things out with my ex without even having to go to mediation, saving me lots of money. It has been over a year since we got the parenting plan done and it has been very helpful to see my kids. Thank you once again."

"Helena Farber handled a family law matter for me including relocation and time sharing agreements. Going through family law is very stressful however Helena kept me up to date every step of the way. She was courteous, answered questions no matter how often I asked them, was on top of everything. You could tell she cared about the well being of my children and was a staunch advocate for myself and my family. She is very knowledgeable, gave great legal advice and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a family law lawyer. She continues to be available for questions and concerns even after our case reached settlement. I would not hesitate to hire Helena again."

"I wanted to leave my partner but we had joint property and she was not doing well mentally and was hard to reason with. Ms. Farber advised me of my legal rights and gave me several options as to how to proceed. She was very understanding and sensitive with the situation. She returned calls very quickly and followed up with me timely."
