Rhode Island Postnuptial Agreement Attorney
What is a Postnuptial Agreement?
A postnuptial agreement (or post-marital agreement) is a voluntary marriage
contract between two legally married persons who are not contemplating
divorce but who desire to predetermine which party gets which asset in
the event of a divorce. In the event of marriage dissolution or a spouse's
death, it may establish the handling of issues like:
- assets & property
Postnups can be 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.
In order to be effective, they must be correctly and precisely drafted.

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 sign 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.
