Already Married - The Post-Nuptial Agreement

Are post-nuptial agreements as binding as pre-nuptial agreements? The answer is, if done properly, an unequivocal yes. But asking your spouse to sign a post-nuptial agreement may seem like the end of the honeymoon, you say. Well, it doesn't have to be. Often times a post-nuptial agreement provides a measure of comfort and security to the less monied spouse. When you have blended families, with children from prior marriages, it also makes logical sense to both partners to properly care for all the ones you both love.
