How to update your prenuptial agreement after marriage

A prenuptial agreement is one of the most important legal documents you can create to protect yourself in Kentucky. This document protects you and your assets when you enter into a marriage. It can be difficult to discuss your desire for a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse, but it is an important conversation to have. It is also important that you update the agreement after getting married.

You first must determine which section of the prenuptial agreement you want to edit. Depending on the extent of the changes, you should make a decision regarding the agreement. Can you edit the agreement, or do you need to terminate it? If you need to terminate it you will need to create a postnuptial agreement to replace it.

Once you make this decision, you can edit the part of the agreement that needs to be changed. It’s best to make the changes to the agreement with the help of an attorney. Let the attorney know what it is you want changed and what you need to have included in the revisions.

Determine the language that should be included in the closing of the agreement so that the additions are legal. Review the prenuptial agreement thoroughly so that there are no mistakes. You can then sign it and have your spouse sign it. Make sure both of you have copies of the agreement that are stored in a safe place.

As you can see, it’s possible to update your prenuptial agreement even after exchanging your vows. Just make sure that you know exactly what you want changed and how to go about doing so. This will prevent you from invalidating your own prenuptial agreement.
