Q: Ive been married for 5 years. I want to get a post nuptial agreement. Can my spouse sign one without having her own attorney?
A: The answer is yes – there is no requirement that both sides be represented by counsel. The only requirement is that both sides be advised they have the RIGHT to be represented by counsel – and if there’s a large income disparity, that the less-monied spouse has the right to request the other side pay counsel fees.
