Ohio has finally bowed out of the competition to see what state would be the last to allow post-nuptial agreements. Now, Iowa stands as the only state in the Union to disallow these contracts. On March 23, 2023, Ohio Senate Bill 210 became law. This allows married couples to modify or terminate their existing prenuptial agreement or enter into a new postnuptial agreement. This means more options for you and your spouse as you both adapt to the changes life throws at you during your union.
Though pre-nuptials do protect the interests of you and your loved ones, there exists a potential that they may become obsolete. This is especially true when it comes to longer-lasting marriages.
As years pass, and the two of you acquire new assets and face unforeseen challenges, you may find that the pre-nuptial agreement that made sense originally no longer fits your situation. In these cases, a post-nuptial agreement provides a new avenue by which your agreement can grow and change according to the needs of your relationship.
In order to establish a post-nuptial agreement or modify an already existing pre-nuptial agreement, the following conditions must be met.
If you and your spouse require assistance in drafting a post-nuptial agreement, modifying your existing pre-nuptial agreement, or have any family law-related questions, call Lardiere McNair DiNicola & Stonebrook, Ltd. LPA, to set up a consultation.
