Queens Postnuptial Agreements Lawyers

Occasionally, circumstances arise necessitating marriage parties to redefine their roles and responsibilities or execute other important provisions. When such occasions occur, postnuptial agreements could prove vital.

Postnuptial Agreement Overview

Postnuptial agreements are legal contracts spouses enter into at some point during their married life.

Issues Postnuptial Agreements Can Address

In an appreciable percentage of cases, postnuptial agreements are forged to determine how specific concerns will be resolved in the event the couple separates. However, these contracts can also be authored to establish how specific legal, personal, and financial matters will be addressed while the couple remains married.

Arguably, the most commonly debated subject is asset distribution. Typically, when spouses part ways, their marital assets are divided. This property is the material said entities accumulated during their time wedded.

Asset allocation is subject to individual state law. A small percentage of states require separating subjects to split marital assets evenly. However, a significant number of locations adhere to a civil principle called equitable distribution. This regulation mandates that assets are split fairly but in consideration of which spouse most contributed to their accumulation.

That said, postnuptial contracts are not required to define asset distribution following divorce. Said arrangements might also pertain to financial accounts, investments, or property that one or both parties currently own.

Aside from asset division, postnuptial contracts could focus on additional topics, including the specific financial or personal responsibilities each party will perform moving forward, separating business and personal interests, and protecting one party from another’s debts.

Topics Postnuptial Agreements Do Not Cover

Issues like child custody and child support are normally not included in postnuptial contracts. Typically, courts take a more proactive role in overseeing proceedings impacting the well-being of children.

While courts encourage couples to mutually agree upon parenting plans, said bodies will have the final say governing matters like child support and custody. The presiding authorities will consider several factors and render decisions most befitting the best interests of the youths in question.

Circumstances Where Postnuptial Agreements Make Sense

There are no set rules or circumstances in which a prenuptial agreement should or should not be signed.

That said, said a contract might warrant adoption on occasions where one or both parties incur sizable and irresponsible debt, receive a significant inheritance of reward, stop working to care for minor children, are forced to take on a greater amount of duties, or wish to declare what happens to their assets in the event of their passing.

The Negotiation Process

Before a court can ratify a postnuptial agreement, the adopting parties must first agree to all conditions contained therein. Ergo, even under the most amicable circumstances, the process could be relatively time-consuming and require a significant amount of negotiation.

Legal professionals urge prospective contract entrants to retain the services of an experienced family or estate attorney to represent them in said negotiations.

The individual drafter and their attorney should list every issue they feel warrants discussion and negotiate said points until both sides can reach a fair and reasonable agreement on said topics. Then, an official contract should be written and signed by all concerned entities.

The endorsed agreement can be sent to a court for review. If the court deems the arrangement meets established civil standards, said contract can be entered into formal record. Upon court acceptance, the document is legally-binding.

If circumstances arise prompting either party to request a change, alterations can be made provided both sides agree to them. That said, ratifying the agreement will necessitate a formal modification appeal to the civil court where the original arrangement was formally adopted.

Ensuring Validity

For a postuptial contract to be valid, certain criteria must be met. Said provisions include:


If either party was intimidated or forced into signing the agreement against their will, validity could come into question.


Legal ruling bodies might question an agreement’s validity if said entity discovers that the provisions blatantly favor one party.

The Contract Was Not Put Into Writing

For a court to consider the contract authentic, it must be written and signed by both parties.

False Information Is Included

Contracts containing information established as obviously false might also invalidate said agreement.

Difference Between Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial contracts cover the same issues and are formally established using the same procedures. However, prenuptial agreements are authored and entered into record prior to a couple wedding.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
