How does a post-marital agreement work?

A post-marital agreement is a document that can be supported without any consideration, so there doesn’t have to be anything given up in the process of entering into that. The legislature in Illinois encourages people, if they are able to peacefully resolve potential disputes, and to do so in writing, and it has to be signed. That’s something that is completely enforceable and readily accepted by the courts.
