Postnuptial agreements can help parties in a marriage protect their property in the event of a divorce. Whether or not to seek a postnuptial agreement is a personal decision that each couple needs to make, but an experienced lawyer can answer your questions about postnuptial agreements and help you determine whether it is the right choice for you.

Does a postnuptial agreement cover the same issues as a prenuptial agreement? No. Postnuptial agreements are strictly limited to property while prenuptial agreements can cover everything from separate and marital property to post-divorce alimony.
How can a postnuptial agreement protect my property? A postnuptial agreement can be used to convert community property into separate property in the event of a divorce. For example, a couple can agree in a postnuptial agreement that one party should retain the house in the event of a divorce, with that house becoming separate property per the terms of the agreement.
Can other issues be brought into a postnuptial agreement? No. However, if you and your spouse do wish to divorce down the road and can reach agreement on how property, support and other issues can be handled, our attorneys can assist you with divorce planning.
