Due to a medical condition, you decided to quit your job and become a housewife a few years after you got married. Fortunately, your husband makes a good income and is able to support the both of you. Your friends advised you to create a postnuptial agreement to protect you should the marriage not work, but you didn’t because you thought it would last forever. Now, your husband wants to leave you. Here, we take a look at postnuptial agreements and how they can help housewives in San Fran divorces.
What is a Postnuptial Agreement?
- Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are made during the marriage instead of before. Oftentimes, they are intended to address a problem area in the marriage so that the relationship can move forward.
What is Included?
- Drafting a postnuptial agreement allows you and your husband to talk candidly and frankly about your finances and what they will become if you divorce. For instance, you may be able to create a condition that states you will receive money after the separation that will last until you are able to support yourself.
Will Drafting One Hurt My Relationship?
- Although every relationship and experience is different, you may find that your marriage becomes stronger after drafting such a document. Creating a postnuptial agreement gets all of your concerns out in the open, and your spouse may appreciate your honesty. Either way, protecting yourself is important for your future.
