A ‘reconciliation agreement’ or ‘postnuptial’ or ‘marital’ agreement is an ‘agreement between spouses who plan to continue their marriage’;
it alters or confirms the legal rights and obligations that would otherwise arise under divorce law.
It is hoped that in some cases the agreement ‘may inhibit the dissolution of a marriage, or may protect the interests of third parties such as children from a prior relationship.’ —Paraphrased from the Supreme Judicial Court case of Ansin v. Craven-Ansin.
In other words, a Reconciliation Agreement is a written agreement you and your spouse prepare in an attempt to reconcile marital differences while acknowledging the possibility of divorce. The agreement sets out the rights and obligations of you and your spouse if divorce becomes an unfortunate reality.
