Rhode Island Postnuptial Agreement A ttorney
A postnuptial agreement (or post-marital agreement) is a voluntary marriage contract between a couple that is already married. It may establish the handling of debt, assets, property and future alimony, in the event of marriage dissolution or a spouse's death. It is a beneficial way to put control of assets in the hands of the spouses and not the courts, should the marriage come to an end. Postnuptial agreements are generally tougher to enforce than prenuptial agreements. They must be correctly and precisely drafted. If you are considering a postnuptial agreement, it is essential that you contact an experienced Rhode Island divorce attorney for effective legal guidance.
At The Law Office of Patricia A. Sullivan, I have aided clients in drafting postnuptial agreements for the past 31 years. I understand the various pitfalls that can lessen a marital contract's enforceability. Both spouses must fully agree to signing the contract, as any coercion could nullify the agreement at a later date. It is also very important that full disclosure be made between spouses of all their assets and debts for the contract to be valid later on. I can help you in compiling and organizing the information you need to have in your contract.
