Chicago Postnuptial Agreements Attorneys

Skilled Negotiators and Aggressive Litigators Fighting for Your Protection

While many couples make decisions about their financial assets and obligations prior to getting married in the form of a prenuptial agreement, such decisions can also be made after the marriage. Postnuptial agreements between a husband and wife are used to characterize marital assets and debts and define financial responsibilities. At Anderson & Associates, P.C., we assist spouses in creating postnuptial agreements that are comprehensive and legally enforceable. We work with both husbands and wives and take care to fully protect our clients’ interests.

When Postnuptial Agreements Are Used

In the hustle to plan a wedding and prepare for a marriage, sometimes getting a prenuptial agreement ironed out falls by the wayside. A postnuptial agreement can be your second bite at that apple. Even if you have a premarital agreement in place, a postnuptial agreement may be advisable under certain circumstances. Spouses may seek to bring additional clarity to their financial obligations if, for example:

  • One or both spouses start or invest in a business
  • One spouse would like to make a risky financial investment
  • One spouse inherits a large sum of money
  • One spouse purchases an asset that has sentimental value
  • One spouse has children or grandchildren from a previous relationship

Many married couples also choose to enter into a postnuptial agreements during times of marital distress to “level the playing field” while working on the marriage. Additionally, postnuptial agreements are sometimes drafted when couples decide to legally separate, but do not want to get a divorce right away or at all. Whatever your specific situation, our experienced attorneys can help you draft and negotiate a postnuptial agreement that protects your interests and fulfills your objectives.
