Post Nuptial Agreement Laws in Massachusetts

Post Nuptial Agreements are a useful tool for married couples who may have had a change in circumstances or both want protection for assets or property. At Shapiro Law Group, PC, our family law attorney’s will listen to the details of your situation and explain the options and benefits of having a Post Nuptial Agreement drafted.

Why an Agreement After Marriage?

Unlike a prenuptial agreement which takes place before the marriage, Post Nuptials are useful as a couple’s marriage evolves, so may the roles of both parties. If one party decides to venture into a family business or invest money in an opportunity, the other may not want to follow in the same direction. A way of keeping one spouse’s credit or financial interests separate in this scenario is to devise a Post Nuptial Agreement. An Agreement may simply be protection from liability for the actions or business ventures of the other. A post nuptial agreement can also help partners agree to a fair settlement or compensation if one has given up career goals to raise a family. If one spouse is supporting the other’s educational pursuits, that investment may be compensated as part of the terms of a Post Nuptial Agreement.
