Post Nuptial Agreement

wedding ring

Why do I need a post-nuptial agreement?

It shows to the court that the agreement was not something that has been entered into without proper consideration. Further, it may persuade someone looking at the agreement that there had unlikely been any direct or indirect coercion. It also gives the pre-nuptial agreement a sort of seal of approval once the pressures of the wedding have gone. It gives the court more confidence in the agreement. Note you cannot make a post-nuptial agreement without having already entered into or about to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement.

What form does this Post Nuptial agreement take?

It can be simple or it can add further information or record any changes since the pre-nuptial agreement.

Does the post-nuptial agreement need to have independent legal advice?

Yes. The same conditions apply as to the pre-nuptial agreement.
