In giving my wife every opportunity to change my mind if I see that there is positive change(going to therapy, not committing adulterous acts, and repentance for her choices) going forward I will pull the Adultery DBB back. But to protect myself a rock solid post nuptual agreement will need to be signed. What can a post nuptual agreement cover in NC and how much weight does it carry going forward. Say she gets better 6 months into treatment and we reconcile but relapses a year or more later. Will the PN agreement hold up if I eventually have to finally divorce her?
A postnuptial agreement will hold up and be enforceable in the event of a later divorce.
A postnuptial agreement sets forth the distribution of marital assets in the event the parties later divorce. A postnuptial agreement cannot waive alimony. The agreement is entered into after the marriage but before a separation occurs.
