Post-Civil Union Agreements

A post-civil union agreement is a contract between the parties, executed during the civil union, that addresses what will happen financially during the course of the civil union, in the event of dissolution of the civil union or the death of a party, or in other agreed upon circumstances.

Post-civil union agreements can be complex and often address the division of assets, debts, and the payment of attorneys’ fees. Like their pre-civil union counterparts, post-civil union agreements allow parties to decide ahead of time how their assets (whether acquired before or during the union) will be distributed and will protect the parties’ much needed resources as they transition into separate homes.

Like their premarital counterparts, postnuptial agreements require full financial disclosure, including both spouses assets and liabilities.
