In some States, ancillary agreements cannot be complied with if both parties have not had the opportunity to verify and discuss the terms of the agreement with their own separate lawyers. While post-environmental agreements are considered enforceable, you or your spouse may challenge the validity of an additional contract for certain reasons, including: in many states, a post-ïcois contract may not include custody provisions after divorce. This is due to the fact that the rules of custody and access of children born during your marriage must be consistent with the judge`s assessment of their well-being at the time of your divorce. Even if your state allows these provisions in a post-economic contract, the judge will still review them to ensure they are in the best interests of your children before imposing them.

However, a pioneering case (Radmacher v. Granatino) held that the courts had to maintain a marriage contract if it was fair, which would result in the maintenance of valid post-marital agreements. However, in order to increase the likelihood that a court will follow the instructions of postnups, the following points should be taken into account: If you and your spouse are considering an additional contract, you are well advised to go to a lawyer. . . .
