In recent years postnuptial agreements have gained popularity and there are several reasons a couple may wish to adopt a postnuptial agreement. If there is no prenuptial agreement in place, a couple may determine they still want to have a financial plan in the event of death or divorce. Alternatively, a change in the couple’s financial circumstances, such as an inheritance, may require a change to the terms of a couple's existing prenuptial agreement.

To ensure that your postnuptial agreement is valid and enforceable, the agreement must contain a complete disclosure of assets and liabilities, fair distribution of property, reasonable child support provisions, fairness to both parties and contain a statement that both parties obtained independent legal advice.

Among others, this form includes the following provisions:
  • Separate Property Specified: Identifies the property that remains the separate property of each spouse
  • Shared Property Specified: Identifies the property that is shared by the spouses
  • Determination of Type of Property: Clarifies how the property type, whether separate or shared, will be determined
  • Alimony, Support, and Maintenance: Provides for any alimony, support and maintenance should a divorce occur
  • Wills and Other Transfers of Properties: Specifies the effects divorce will have on other transfers of properties

General Information
Postnuptial Agreement
(England & Wales)

In recent years, Postnuptial Agreements have gained popularity among married couples seeking a mechanism for predetermining the disposition of their property in the event of death or divorce.  Traditionally, husbands and wives were forbidden from contracting with each other, making it impossible to reach these types of arrangements.  But with changes in the law in the 19th and 20th centuries, these prohibitions have been largely removed, and postnuptial agreements have become a viable counterpart to the prenuptial agreement.

Why a Postnuptial Agreement?

There are several reasons why a couple might wish to adopt a Postnuptial Agreement.  For example, a couple that did not sign a Prenuptial Agreement before marriage may later determine that they want to have some sort of financial plan in place in the event of death or divorce.  Additionally, a major change in the financial circumstances of the couple, such as a major career change or inheritance, may alter the financial landscape, requiring a change to the terms of the couples existing prenup to reflect their current wishes.

While a Postnuptial Agreement may not be as strong of an option as a prenup (see below), it still may be better than having no agreement at all.  Without such agreements, the courts will order an equal division of assets in cases of a long marriage where assets exceed needs. The Family Law Courts consider the division of assets against a yardstick of equality. If a divorce petition is filed in a short, childless marriage (normally less than 5 years duration) it is unlikely that a 50/50 division of assets will be ordered particularly if one spouse brought substantially more assets to the marriage. Normally assets acquired prior to the marriage will be retained, or returned to the spouse who originally had them, and assets accumulated during the marriage will be divided on a 50/50 basis when the parties divorce. Hence, any non-traditional or specific allocations that you wish to make should be covered by either a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement to avoid the standard distributions.

Prenuptial vs. Postnuptial Agreement



A postnuptial agreement does have the potential to be a binding agreement which a prenup does not. A proper prenup will be considered and very probably enforced, but it is not legally binding so there are no guarantees. Postnuptial agreements in fact have a different legal basis from prenups. A December 2008 decision of the Privy Council has confirmed that they are a type of “maintenance agreement”. Unlike prenups, in the absence of duress, misrepresentation and such like, they are considered to be binding upon the parties.



However, there are two exceptions to this general rule. The first is if the postnuptial agreement does not make sufficient provision for any children of the marriage. The second exception is where there has been a change in the circumstances of the parties between the signing of the postnuptial agreement and the divorce. There is an assumption that prior to marriage, the parties are more likely to have equal footing in terms of bargaining power, while after marriage, it is more likely that one party may be able to coerce the other.  Consequently, reviewing courts are more likely to invalidate portions of a Postnuptial Agreement (or potentially the entire agreement) where it believes that the agreement is not a fair and reasonable representation of the wishes and interests of the parties.

Enforceability

While interpretation and enforcement of a Postnuptial Agreement may be unpredictable, there are steps you can take to give your Postnuptial Agreement the greatest chance of being enforced.  In general terms, a court will review the agreement according to several criteria.  

   Full Disclosure:  It is vital that both parties make full and complete disclosures of their assets and liabilities.  A failure to be forthcoming in this respect can lead to a judges determination that the entire agreement was reached unfairly or through misrepresentation, and that it should be set aside in favour of a court-determined distribution of property.

   Separate Counsel: A strong indicator of the fairness and reasonableness of a Postnuptial Agreement is that both parties were advised by separate and independent solicitors. Separate and independent means that both parties have their own counsel and that neither solicitor is beholden to or influenced by the opposing party (i.e. a wife may not be represented by a solicitor working for her husbands law firm). The Courts also considers the factor that appropriate and accurate legal advice being given to the parties at all stages leading up to execution of the agreement;

   Fairness:  First and foremost, a court will review a Postnuptial Agreement to ensure that the actual distribution of property is fair.  For example, any agreement that leaves one spouse with a disproportionate amount of the couples assets, while leaving the other spouse with little or nothing to his/her name would likely be invalidated by a reviewing court.  The Courts consider the existence of genuine mutual consent where the agreement gives rise to an unequal division of assets.





   Child Support:  Most courts will automatically reject certain types of provisions in Postnuptial Agreements as unfair.  Provisions that limit the amount of child support a spouse would have to pay in the event of divorce are almost universally rejected by courts.  It is therefore highly advisable not to include such provisions in your Postnuptial Agreement, so as to avoid creating a perception of unfairness that could colour a reviewing courts reading of the entire agreement.

   Circumstances: Courts consider the fact that if there are any circumstances that are evident at the time of the negotiations which may lead to the suggestion that unfair advantage has been taken by either of the parties and the fact that in the event if such circumstances do prevail, then no such advantage has in fact been taken

Included in this kit is General Instructions and Checklist, Information on Postnuptial Agreements, Step-by-Step Instructions and a sample Postnuptial Agreement. You are advised to consult with a competent family law solicitor in to determine the particular rules of interpretation of enforcement applicable to your situation.










Step by Step Instructions
Postnuptial Agreement
(England  and Wales)

The following instructions will walk you through each provision to help you fully understand the terms of your Agreement.

Recitals:  

    Fill in the name of the husband and wife at the top of the form.  Enter the day, month and year, the name of the wife, and the name of the husband (the “Parties”).

The parties state that they wish to enter into this Agreement to establish the ownership and division of property between them in the event of the termination of their marriage.

A complete disclosure of the assets of both parties is contained in Exhibits A and B, which will be attached to this agreement. These exhibits are extremely important to this agreement. One of the major advantages of having a post nuptial agreement is for each party to be able to retain their separate property, and not have it become subject to property laws. Each party should take care to make sure this list is as all-inclusive as it needs to be.  Whatever does not go on these exhibits, under this agreement become shared property. Further, failing to make a full disclosure could jeopardise the document as whole if it ever went to court.  

Each party has obtained separate legal counsel. This is highly recommended for these types of agreements. The courts are sometimes reluctant to enforcement these agreements post marriage, because there is more of an opportunity for coercion. Each party having their own legal counsel helps to alleviate this inference.

The parties believe this agreement to be fair and accurate.

Section 1: Separate Property.

Section 1: A. i. Generally. This section states that each party will retain their separate property (as set forth in Exhibits A & B). Neither party can make a claim to this property.


Section 1: A. ii. All other property acquired after the execution of this agreement shall be shared property.






Section 1: B. i. Debts. On the aforementioned schedules A and B, the parties will also list the debts that they had prior to marriage. In this section the parties will indicate whether they consider the premarital debt separate or shared property (check the appropriate box). If there is another arrangement the parties have agreed to, enter it under “other division.”  

Section 1: B. ii. Parties agree that all debt incurred after marriage shall be shared property.  The exception here is if the parties have made a stipulation that not all post marital debt will be shared, then write the criteria here. Examples of possible exceptions would be business debt would be handled by the spouse that owns the business, or if the parties maintain accounts in their own names and want to keep those separate property.  

Section 1: C. Rights to separate property. Parties retain full and complete rights over their separate property.

Section 1: B. Parties agree to assume any tax obligations as a result of their separate property.

Section II: Shared Property

Section II: A. Generally.  All property that has not been designated as separate is presumed shared.

Section II: B. Distribution on Separation or Divorce.  In this section the parties decide how the shared property will be handled in the event of death or divorce.  Here the parties will check the appropriate box according to how they want their shared property characterised.  Either the property will be shared equally, or a percentage will go to each party. If this option is used, fill in the percentage and name of each party.

Section III: Determination of Type of Property.   This chart enables the party to designate various items as shared or separate.  If the item listed does not apply its a good idea to mark N/A (not applicable), rather than leaving a box blank and open to ambiguity.

Section III: B.   If for some reason as a result of the termination of the marital relationship there is a question as to the characterisation of property, it shall be designated separate or shared (mark the appropriate box).

Section IV: Alimony, Support and Maintenance.

Section IV: A.    Here, the parties decide in advance if alimony will be paid, and the amount, no alimony will be paid, or another arrangement will be used.  Mark the appropriate box.  



Section IV: B.   The section sets out possible exceptions to Section IV.A. Possible exceptions to the predetermined alimony arrangement include disability; a partys career being affected for the benefit of the other spouse, staying home with children, or one party substantially increasing their hours so the other can go to school.  Check any that apply and fill in the maximum amount of years that spousal support would be paid. If another exception applies, write a detailed description of this situation under “other.



Section V: Wills and Other Transfer of Property.  This document does not cancel any provisions made in a will, or a gift or conveyance from one party to the other.

Section VI: Additional Clauses.   Add any other provisions or special arrangements between the parties that have not been otherwise mentioned.

Section VII: Miscellaneous.  
A. Successors and assigns. This agreement will be binding and benefit the parties successors and assigns.
B. This Agreement can be amended or revoked by written agreement.
C. This Agreement specifies that laws of England & Wales will control.
D Severability- This severability clause serves to preserve the agreement should a portion of it ever be invalidated by the court.  Without this clause, a finding that one provision is unenforceable would invalidate the entire agreement.
E. The paragraph headings are only for convenience and arent to be considered to limit the scope of any particular paragraph.
F. This Agreement including the exhibits attached is considered the entire agreement of the parties.



Signature Block:  Both parties should sign the Agreement in the presence of two witnesses, who will sign their name under the parties signature.  It is a good idea to sign two originals, so that each party has an original document for their records.

Schedule A:   This form is to be completed by the husband.  List all assets to be claimed as separate property as well as all debts.  Fill in the husbands annual income and the total amount of the husbands assets. Remember that full disclosure on these Schedules is very important. Failure to fully disclose information could invalidate the entire Agreement.


Schedule B:   This form is to be completed by the wife. List all assets to be claimed as separate property as well as all debts. Fill in the wifes annual income and the total amount of the husbands assets.

General Information
Postnuptial Agreement
(England & Wales)

In recent years, Postnuptial Agreements have gained popularity among married couples seeking a mechanism for predetermining the disposition of their property in the event of death or divorce.  Traditionally, husbands and wives were forbidden from contracting with each other, making it impossible to reach these types of arrangements.  But with changes in the law in the 19th and 20th centuries, these prohibitions have been largely removed, and postnuptial agreements have become a viable counterpart to the prenuptial agreement.

Why a Postnuptial Agreement?

There are several reasons why a couple might wish to adopt a Postnuptial Agreement.  For example, a couple that did not sign a Prenuptial Agreement before marriage may later determine that they want to have some sort of financial plan in place in the event of death or divorce.  Additionally, a major change in the financial circumstances of the couple, such as a major career change or inheritance, may alter the financial landscape, requiring a change to the terms of the couples existing prenup to reflect their current wishes.

While a Postnuptial Agreement may not be as strong of an option as a prenup (see below), it still may be better than having no agreement at all.  Without such agreements, the courts will order an equal division of assets in cases of a long marriage where assets exceed needs. The Family Law Courts consider the division of assets against a yardstick of equality. If a divorce petition is filed in a short, childless marriage (normally less than 5 years duration) it is unlikely that a 50/50 division of assets will be ordered particularly if one spouse brought substantially more assets to the marriage. Normally assets acquired prior to the marriage will be retained, or returned to the spouse who originally had them, and assets accumulated during the marriage will be divided on a 50/50 basis when the parties divorce. Hence, any non-traditional or specific allocations that you wish to make should be covered by either a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement to avoid the standard distributions.

Prenuptial vs. Postnuptial Agreement



A postnuptial agreement does have the potential to be a binding agreement which a prenup does not. A proper prenup will be considered and very probably enforced, but it is not legally binding so there are no guarantees. Postnuptial agreements in fact have a different legal basis from prenups. A December 2008 decision of the Privy Council has confirmed that they are a type of “maintenance agreement”. Unlike prenups, in the absence of duress, misrepresentation and such like, they are considered to be binding upon the parties.



However, there are two exceptions to this general rule. The first is if the postnuptial agreement does not make sufficient provision for any children of the marriage. The second exception is where there has been a change in the circumstances of the parties between the signing of the postnuptial agreement and the divorce. There is an assumption that prior to marriage, the parties are more likely to have equal footing in terms of bargaining power, while after marriage, it is more likely that one party may be able to coerce the other.  Consequently, reviewing courts are more likely to invalidate portions of a Postnuptial Agreement (or potentially the entire agreement) where it believes that the agreement is not a fair and reasonable representation of the wishes and interests of the parties.

Enforceability

While interpretation and enforcement of a Postnuptial Agreement may be unpredictable, there are steps you can take to give your Postnuptial Agreement the greatest chance of being enforced.  In general terms, a court will review the agreement according to several criteria.  

   Full Disclosure:  It is vital that both parties make full and complete disclosures of their assets and liabilities.  A failure to be forthcoming in this respect can lead to a judges determination that the entire agreement was reached unfairly or through misrepresentation, and that it should be set aside in favour of a court-determined distribution of property.

   Separate Counsel: A strong indicator of the fairness and reasonableness of a Postnuptial Agreement is that both parties were advised by separate and independent solicitors. Separate and independent means that both parties have their own counsel and that neither solicitor is beholden to or influenced by the opposing party (i.e. a wife may not be represented by a solicitor working for her husbands law firm). The Courts also considers the factor that appropriate and accurate legal advice being given to the parties at all stages leading up to execution of the agreement;

   Fairness:  First and foremost, a court will review a Postnuptial Agreement to ensure that the actual distribution of property is fair.  For example, any agreement that leaves one spouse with a disproportionate amount of the couples assets, while leaving the other spouse with little or nothing to his/her name would likely be invalidated by a reviewing court.  The Courts consider the existence of genuine mutual consent where the agreement gives rise to an unequal division of assets.





   Child Support:  Most courts will automatically reject certain types of provisions in Postnuptial Agreements as unfair.  Provisions that limit the amount of child support a spouse would have to pay in the event of divorce are almost universally rejected by courts.  It is therefore highly advisable not to include such provisions in your Postnuptial Agreement, so as to avoid creating a perception of unfairness that could colour a reviewing courts reading of the entire agreement.

   Circumstances: Courts consider the fact that if there are any circumstances that are evident at the time of the negotiations which may lead to the suggestion that unfair advantage has been taken by either of the parties and the fact that in the event if such circumstances do prevail, then no such advantage has in fact been taken

You are advised to consult with a competent family law solicitor in to determine the particular rules of interpretation of enforcement applicable to your situation.










Step by Step Instructions
Postnuptial Agreement
(England  and Wales)

The following instructions will walk you through each provision to help you fully understand the terms of your Agreement.

Recitals:  

    Fill in the name of the husband and wife at the top of the form.  Enter the day, month and year, the name of the wife, and the name of the husband (the “Parties”).

The parties state that they wish to enter into this Agreement to establish the ownership and division of property between them in the event of the termination of their marriage.

A complete disclosure of the assets of both parties is contained in Exhibits A and B, which will be attached to this agreement. These exhibits are extremely important to this agreement. One of the major advantages of having a post nuptial agreement is for each party to be able to retain their separate property, and not have it become subject to property laws. Each party should take care to make sure this list is as all-inclusive as it needs to be.  Whatever does not go on these exhibits, under this agreement become shared property. Further, failing to make a full disclosure could jeopardise the document as whole if it ever went to court.  

Each party has obtained separate legal counsel. This is highly recommended for these types of agreements. The courts are sometimes reluctant to enforcement these agreements post marriage, because there is more of an opportunity for coercion. Each party having their own legal counsel helps to alleviate this inference.

The parties believe this agreement to be fair and accurate.

Section 1: Separate Property.

Section 1: A. i. Generally. This section states that each party will retain their separate property (as set forth in Exhibits A & B). Neither party can make a claim to this property.


Section 1: A. ii. All other property acquired after the execution of this agreement shall be shared property.






Section 1: B. i. Debts. On the aforementioned schedules A and B, the parties will also list the debts that they had prior to marriage. In this section the parties will indicate whether they consider the premarital debt separate or shared property (check the appropriate box). If there is another arrangement the parties have agreed to, enter it under “other division.”  

Section 1: B. ii. Parties agree that all debt incurred after marriage shall be shared property.  The exception here is if the parties have made a stipulation that not all post marital debt will be shared, then write the criteria here. Examples of possible exceptions would be business debt would be handled by the spouse that owns the business, or if the parties maintain accounts in their own names and want to keep those separate property.  

Section 1: C. Rights to separate property. Parties retain full and complete rights over their separate property.

Section 1: B. Parties agree to assume any tax obligations as a result of their separate property.

Section II: Shared Property

Section II: A. Generally.  All property that has not been designated as separate is presumed shared.

Section II: B. Distribution on Separation or Divorce.  In this section the parties decide how the shared property will be handled in the event of death or divorce.  Here the parties will check the appropriate box according to how they want their shared property characterised.  Either the property will be shared equally, or a percentage will go to each party. If this option is used, fill in the percentage and name of each party.

Section III: Determination of Type of Property.   This chart enables the party to designate various items as shared or separate.  If the item listed does not apply its a good idea to mark N/A (not applicable), rather than leaving a box blank and open to ambiguity.

Section III: B.   If for some reason as a result of the termination of the marital relationship there is a question as to the characterisation of property, it shall be designated separate or shared (mark the appropriate box).

Section IV: Alimony, Support and Maintenance.

Section IV: A.    Here, the parties decide in advance if alimony will be paid, and the amount, no alimony will be paid, or another arrangement will be used.  Mark the appropriate box.  



Section IV: B.   The section sets out possible exceptions to Section IV.A. Possible exceptions to the predetermined alimony arrangement include disability; a partys career being affected for the benefit of the other spouse, staying home with children, or one party substantially increasing their hours so the other can go to school.  Check any that apply and fill in the maximum amount of years that spousal support would be paid. If another exception applies, write a detailed description of this situation under “other.



Section V: Wills and Other Transfer of Property.  This document does not cancel any provisions made in a will, or a gift or conveyance from one party to the other.

Section VI: Additional Clauses.   Add any other provisions or special arrangements between the parties that have not been otherwise mentioned.

Section VII: Miscellaneous.  
A. Successors and assigns. This agreement will be binding and benefit the parties successors and assigns.
B. This Agreement can be amended or revoked by written agreement.
C. This Agreement specifies that laws of England & Wales will control.
D Severability- This severability clause serves to preserve the agreement should a portion of it ever be invalidated by the court.  Without this clause, a finding that one provision is unenforceable would invalidate the entire agreement.
E. The paragraph headings are only for convenience and arent to be considered to limit the scope of any particular paragraph.
F. This Agreement including the exhibits attached is considered the entire agreement of the parties.



Signature Block:  Both parties should sign the Agreement in the presence of two witnesses, who will sign their name under the parties signature.  It is a good idea to sign two originals, so that each party has an original document for their records.

Schedule A:   This form is to be completed by the husband.  List all assets to be claimed as separate property as well as all debts.  Fill in the husbands annual income and the total amount of the husbands assets. Remember that full disclosure on these Schedules is very important. Failure to fully disclose information could invalidate the entire Agreement.


Schedule B:   This form is to be completed by the wife. List all assets to be claimed as separate property as well as all debts. Fill in the wifes annual income and the total amount of the husbands assets.

After an Internet search for this form, I found one option for a "package" containing this form and others to amend or cancel the form. It was more than I wanted and almost $50.00. Then I came across FindLegalForms.com and got the form for less than half of the other offer. Easy to locate, a snap to download and in a few minutes my wife and I had a state specific hard copy in our hands. Overall, an excellent experience that I recommend without hesitation.
