Postnuptial agreements are legal documents that are drafted in the event that a couple decides to get married, with the intention of protecting each other's assets in the event of a divorce.

- Spousal support in the event of divorce

Postnuptial agreements are often drafted by people who are wealthy and successful, and who have assets that they wish to protect, either in the event of divorce or death. Executives, business owners, and professionals are often the types of people who should consider the benefits of a postnuptial agreement.
