Most people are familiar with the concept of the prenuptial agreement. These documents outline legal expectations for a marriage, including issues like adultery, division of assets in case of a divorce and even expectations about the number of children the couple will have. If you are already married and considering divorce because of issues in your marriage, you might consider a postnuptial agreement. Like prenuptial agreements, these documents help couples outline the expectations of each party for the duration of the marital union. The postnuptial document is executed during, not before the marriage.
