3 times a postnuptial agreement usually makes sense

Even though marriage ceremonies are often full of family members, friends, flowers and cake, a marriage is a legal contract between two spouses and the government. Still, many couples do not view their marriage as a formal agreement. If the union eventually fails, though, divorcing spouses must divide marital property, settle custody matters and tackle other challenges. 

There is a good chance that you have heard of prenuptial agreements, as they are often fodder for gossip columnists and rom-com directors alike. You may be unfamiliar with postnuptial agreements, however. As their name indicates, postnuptial agreements happen after the marriage takes place. These agreements often address who gets what after a divorce, but they may also cover spousal obligations and other matters. Here are three times a postnuptial agreement usually makes sense:

Liquor law: one of CT’s most complex, regulated legal spheres

It’s hardly surprising that laws surrounding the manufacture, distribution and sale of liquor in Connecticut are among the state’s most complex and exacting, is it?

After all, alcohol is a closely regulated product. It is immediately understandable that clear and routinely enforced rules must exist to govern its production, consistency and overall quality.

Federal Reserve Chair’s focus today is on CT’s business sphere

We referenced the bottom-line complexity of business in Connecticut and nationally in a recent Berdon, Young and Margolis blog post. We noted in our firm’s November 11 entry that most discussions on commercial challenges and opportunities must ultimately acknowledge that “the business realm is just a complicated arena.”

The successive dips and upswings evidenced by Connecticut-tied commercial data amply bear that out. In fact, an informed conclusion concerning the state’s business health might reasonably gravitate toward either the positive or negative following consideration of the same information.
