Postnuptial Laws

Under Virginia Code 20-155, married couples can enter into postnuptial agreements. This is a contract like prenuptial agreements, but it is created after the wedding, rather than before. The terms permitted in a postnuptial agreement are similar to the ones in a premarital agreement. These include:

  • Any legal term which does not violate the public policy of Virginia
  • Spousal support provided by either party
  • Provisions regarding wills and trusts of each party
  • Disposition of the assets of the couple in the event of divorce
  • The rights of and the obligations to the property of either party

Do I Need a Postnuptial Agreement?

Typically, couples choose to enter into a postnuptial agreement if they did not execute a prenuptial agreement and want to do so now. Also, a postnuptial agreement can be used to amend or revoke an existing prenuptial agreement.  Many times couples elect a postnuptial agreement to protect their rights after infidelity (cheating) or an inheritance.

Another reason couples may choose a postnuptial agreement is if a spouse wishes to designate a beneficiary of their estate who is not their spouse, or if one spouse enters a partnership and wants to protect those assets from the spouse in the event of divorce.

Like prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements must be in writing and signed by both parties to be enforceable.
