divorce lawyer Andrew LaufersQuestion:

My wife and I are still married but are considering divorce with one of the reasons being the debt my wife has created through her out of control spending.

Can I have my wife sign a post-nuptial agreement that she will leave my 401(k) and retirement stock options alone in the event of divorce if I pay off the debt in her name using my annual bonus and income tax returns?

This will allow her a clean slate and enable me to protect my future. Is this type of agreement before divorce enforceable?

prenuptial postnuptial agreementBy Tara N. Brewer

Special to

When entering into a marriage, divorce may be the furthest possibility from your mind. However, statistics speak volumes making the use of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements more popular than ever.

Currently, the divorce rate in America for a first marriage is 41%. The divorce rate for second marriage is 60% and third marriage is 73%.

Therefore, when making the ultimate decision of marriage, it's important to consider the ways the union impacts your finances.

You survive the first divorce with about half of what you previously owned and swear you will never get married again. Then a few years go by and you’ve met another woman and have overcome the bitter taste of your last divorce.

Your heart is swept away and you have decided to get married again, but you are smarter now and will get your new spouse to sign a pre-nuptial (or ante-nuptial) agreement. Let’s assume both of you hire attorneys and both of you sign the agreement right before you are married.

Remember, your pre-nuptial agreement is only as good as your compliance with it. There are also other considerations to be aware of if you want it to be enforceable.

facts about prenupsBy Molly Murphy

A prenuptial agreement, antenuptial agreement, or premarital agreement, commonly called a prenup, is a contract entered into marriage and or a civil union or any other agreement prior to the main agreement by the people intending to marry or contract with each other.

The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions of division of property and alimony in the event of divorce.

In the United States, prenuptial agreements are recognized in all 50 states.

In most states, five elements are required for a valid prenuptial agreement: the agreement must be in writing (oral prenups are always prohibited); the contract must be executed voluntarily; the contract must have full and/or fair disclosure at the time of execution; the agreement cannot be unconscionable; and the contract must be executed by both parties (not their attorneys) typically before a notary public.

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more commonplace, according to a recent poll that showed 73% of divorce attorneys cited an increase in prenups during the past five years.

The poll of American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) found 36% of attorneys have seen pensions and retirement benefits being more frequently covered, and 52% have noted an increase in women initiating the requests.

Joseph Cordell, Principal Partner of Cordell & Cordell, the nation’s largest domestic litigation firm representing men, said prenuptial agreements are becoming more popular due to society’s greater acceptance of them.
