Postnuptial Agreement through Mediation
A Postnuptial Agreement is an agreement between married people who wish to address a variety of issues during their marriage. These couples are not necessarily considering separation and divorce and wish to remain married and continue to live together.
On the other hand, a Postnuptial Agreement can be useful when a couple is considering but is not yet financially or emotionally ready to physically separate or enter into a legal Separation Agreement and/or divorce.
It is not uncommon for a couple to live in the same residence (often in separate rooms) while they either work on their relationship, or prepare for the separation process. In these situations it may be helpful to have conversations about financial issues and responsibilities, parenting, and intimacy whether or not it is memorialized in a written Agreement.
A Postnuptial Agreement is usually entered into when both people reside together. This is opposed to a Living Apart Agreement that is used when couples wish to live apart and may or may not wish to divorce.
Many of the same issues are addressed in Postnuptial and Living Apart Agreements. These issues are varied but typically include how to share income, pay expenses, allocate family responsibilities including parenting, helping adult children move toward independence, and estate planning just to name a few.
