Post-Nuptial Agreements

Post-nuptial agreements may be appropriate when circumstances change during marriage and to avert disputes between the spouses. These agreements may be considered when relationship changes due to:

  • Career changes
  • Inheritance
  • Childbirth or Adoption
  • Other Factors

As in Pre-Nuptial agreements, Post-nuptial agreements need to spell out what will take place if the marriage ends. In the absence of such agreement, state law, as interpreted by a judge, after a lengthy and expensive trial., the disposition of assets will be determined under state law, as interpreted by a judge.

In order to make sure this agreement is valid and enforceable complete disclosure of assets and liabilities of each spouse need to be in place. It is imperative to have an experienced matrimonial attorney to guide the parties and ensure that the agreement works for both parties. Something of the value must be exchange to sustain the agreement validity. Drafting of such agreement always requires both parties to be represented by legal council.

In order to avoid future or present disputes about assets and liabilities of each spouse, it is a good idea to put in place a Post-Nuptial agreement.

    Debra W.

  • "I came to see Mr. Rudder at the suggestion of my accountant. I got served with divorce papers and did not know who to turn to. From the moment I stepped into his office, I felt like someone had my back and I was going to be OK. He is not just a lawyer, he is a counselor at law which what a divorce lawyer should be, this is a very personal, emotional experience."

    Anita M

  • "I needed a divorce and there was a lot at stake, significant assets and 2 kids. The divorce was not going to be friendly. There was a lot of hostility between and my now ex-wife. Paul Rudder did everything to avoid heavy litigation, tried to settle and negotiate as much as he could. Eventually we did go to court and this man knows how to try a case. I was very satisfied with the outcome."

    Bill A.

  • "I was about to get married and needed a pre-nuptial agreement. I was recommended Paul Rudder by a friend who used him for his. This is a very difficult and sensitive matter and he really helped me understand and identify my rights, goals as well a fairness to my soon to be wife."
