Helping Clients Mend Relationships

A reconciliation agreement, also known as a mid-marriage agreement, is a type of post-nuptial agreement.

Preparing a Reconciliation Agreement

While a reconciliation agreement is a type of post-nuptial agreement, there are factors that make it unique.

The purpose of this type of agreement is to help a couple heal their marriage when there were problems that were serious enough for the couple to separate. Generally, if one spouse is planning to file or has filed divorce papers, that spouse may agree to remain married and not file for divorce, often in exchange for financial or property rights spelled out in an agreement.

Enforcing the Agreement in New Jersey

When deciding to enforce an agreement, the court will consider the terms of the agreement to determine its validity.

It is better to avoid vague terms in preparing the document in order to increase the likelihood that the court will enforce the agreement. The agreement should include detailed information about all promises and property rights being made by each party.

The requirements are similar to other pre and post-nuptial agreements, such as:

  • Both parties must have the advice of an attorney
  • Both parties must enter into the agreement voluntarily
  • Provide full financial disclosure to the other party
  • Absence of any coercion or duress

Determining the fairness of an agreement is left to the discretion of the court. We assist clients in preparing carefully thought out agreements that contain the details the court will be looking for when determining validity and enforcing agreements.
