In the State of Ohio, earlier this year, postnuptial agreements are now allowed under the law whereas previously a prenuptial agreement could not be revised after marriage and postnuptial agreements could not be created!
However, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Both parties must voluntarily agree to the revision.
- The revision must be in writing and signed by both parties.
- The revision must be fair and reasonable.
- The revision cannot be made under duress or fraud.
If all of these conditions are met, then the revised prenuptial agreement will be legally binding.
It is important to note that postnuptial agreements are not as common as prenuptial agreements, and they can be more difficult to enforce. This is because there is always a concern that one party may have been pressured into signing the agreement, or that they did not fully understand the terms of the agreement.
In the case of Melania and Donald Trump, it is possible that they could revise their prenuptial agreement into a postnuptial agreement, but it is important to note that this would likely be a complex and expensive process. They would both need to hire their own attorneys to review the agreement and make sure that it is fair and reasonable.
If you are considering revising your prenuptial agreement, or you wish to create a postnuptial agreement, you should speak to an experienced family law attorney to discuss your options and to get help drafting the agreement.
Rumor has it that if Melania is successful on modifying the terms of the original prenuptial agreement more to her favor, she may start being seen with her husband on the campaign trail.
