When addiction threatens marriages, post nuptials may be the answer
Divorce Attorney Kathryn Wayne-Spindler shares how post nuptials may save marriages plagued by addiction. She explains that many people in a relationship with someone burdened with addiction, don’t want to get divorced but feel pressured into it to protect their finances. Some clients want to stay with a spouse who struggles with addiction so they can support him/her. But they worry that the addict may make choices that impact their shared income or savings. With a post nuptial agreement, the supportive spouse may be able to protect the retirement funds and be able to stay married without the worry of losing everything if the addict relapses and makes damaging life decisions.
For clients who want to stay together, Kathryn Wayne-Spindler, advises that post nuptials may save marriages.
