Prenuptial AND a postnuptial to 'cover ' something we forgot to in the prenup?

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

If we forget to include something in the prenuptial can the postnuptial address it separately? If we left out how we want to deal with some issue such as inheritances or pensions in the prenup can this issue be properly 'covered' in a postnuptial to 'complement' the prenuptial?

    Answered . I would suggest rewriting the post nup and eliminating the pre nup. Inconsistencies will lead to excessive litigation and valuable marital resources will be wasted resolving them.

    Good luck.
