Martin County Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys
Helping Couples Create Sound Arrangements in Jupiter & the Surrounding Areas
While many couples choose to create an agreement that outlines how they would like to divide property, handle child custody and support arrangements, or any other important factors should they divorce, they can choose to create this document after marriage as well. Like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement allows both parties to specify their wishes for a future divorce.

Benefits of a Postnuptial Agreement
There are many benefits to creating a postnuptial agreement. Perhaps the biggest is the fact that, if the couple chooses to divorce in the future, the terms of their divorce are already outlined. This means that the divorce will go quicker and smoother compared to a couple who does not have an established agreement.
Couples commonly include the following in their postnuptial agreements:
- Asset division
- Alimony (spousal support)
- Debt division
- Detailing which assets are marital or separate property
- Instructions for child custody
- Instructions for child support
This agreement can also be used for a couple who files a legal separation instead of or before going through the divorce process.
Creating a Legally Valid Document
Both parties must agree on the terms of the agreement for it to be legally valid. This means that if there is evidence either party was coerced or forced into the agreement, the judge will find the document to be invalid and continue the legal proceeding as if there were no post-nuptial agreement.
Other factors of a valid postnuptial agreement are:
- A full disclosure of each party’s assets and debts
- A written agreement (verbal agreements are automatically void)
- Evidence that the document favors both parties equally
- The guidance of a licensed attorney
