After Marriage Agreement

However, a couple can use a post-nup to increase child support, for example by agreeing that a spouse is responsible for a certain amount of the child`s education or other expected expenses. Next, you and your spouse need to consider and evaluate all of your separate and common assets and finances in order to determine what you need to separate or define in the post-marital contract. One of the first things you`ll decide is what kind of support, if any, you`re going to give yourself, if you separate, which legally means you would no longer act like married people and would act, says Stachtiaris. For example, you could write in the post-marriage contract that no one would receive spouse`s help if you ever separated.
