Couples may enter into marital agreements once they are already married regardless of whether they had a prenuptial agreement or not. (These agreements are often referred to as “postnuptial agreements.”)
The major difference between a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement is the full disclosure of income and assets to the other party. Before you are married, it is your choice to declare income, assets, or property to your partner. Once you are married, imposed on each spouse is a duty to deal in good faith, integrity, and fairness with other person in relation to their interest and well-being.
Entering into a postnuptial agreement can protect the rights of you and your spouse in the event of a divorce, or even death. Just like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement must be created within the boundaries of the law in order to be deemed enforceable.
