Post-nuptial agreements allow spouses to outline how their property will be divided in the event of death or divorce. A post-nuptial agreement can benefit anyone, regardless of age or wealth.

The Difference between Pre- & Post-Nuptial Agreements
The difference between a prenuptial agreement and a post-nuptial agreement is a matter of timing. Prenuptial agreements are signed before marriage while post-nuptial agreements are signed after a couple is already married. In Indiana, a married couple filing for divorce should consider a post-nuptial agreement as part of their reconciliation.
In a post-nuptial agreement, the married couple will set forth how they will divide property and debts incurred before and during the marriage. In addition, the post-nuptial agreement may also set forth conditions for spousal maintenance and additional distributions of property, depending upon the length of the marriage. However, a post-nuptial agreement may not set forth agreements for child support or child custody.
Why Establish a Post-Nuptial Agreement?
Post-nuptial agreements are not exclusively for celebrities or wealthy couples. By executing this type of agreement, the married couple is provided certainty and clarity regarding what would happen in the event that they file for divorce.
In certain circumstances, post-nuptial agreements allow married couples to create an agreement that mirrors the prenuptial agreement they never signed before their wedding day. As with prenuptial agreements, each party should hire their own attorney to review the post-nuptial agreement before executing it.
