POST NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Absent a prenuptial or post nuptial agreement, all property brought into a marriage with the usual exception of gifted and inherited property is deemed marital and divisible upon divorce. Further even property that might otherwise be deemed separate can through the unintentional acts of a party or parties become marital property. In order for gifted or inherited property to maintain its status as separate property the owning spouse must avoid any comingling of separate and marital property and must further be able to document the origin and source of the individual property and any income that may result from that property. A post nuptial agreement allows parties to in most instances avoid any unintentional creation of a marital property interest in individual property.
Post nuptial agreements are used for a variety of reasons surrounding property including protecting a partner who may otherwise be financially impacted.
