Postnuptial Agreements in New York

Postnuptial agreements can provide a number of benefits to both spouses. Not only will a postnuptial agreement outline what should happen in the case of a divorce or separation, thus avoiding a great deal of problems at a later date, but a postnuptial agreement can take a great deal of pressure from a marriage and give both spouses confidence in their future arrangements. These types of agreements must be fair when entered into and also at the time it is being enforced. This takes careful planning with a lawyer.

Generally speaking, for a postnuptial agreement to be valid, it must be in writing, must be voluntarily agreed to by both parties, must have full and fair disclosure at the time of the agreement and must be executed before a notary public.
