How to create a Postnuptial Agreement in Arizona


Prenuptial agreements may be the most common type of spousal agreement, but spouses can create marital agreements after marriage as well. These are known as postnuptial agreements. Spouses in Arizona sometimes use postnuptial agreements to resolve financial disputes during the marriage, and these agreements sometimes help spouses prevent divorce or separation.

A properly drafted postnuptial agreement can separate spouses’ income and create clear financial boundaries by designating certain assets as separate property. As with prenuptial agreements, however, courts can refuse to enforce postnuptial agreements for a number of reasons. Spouses should always consult with an experienced AZ prenuptial postnuptial agreement attorney when considering such an agreement to ensure it will be valid and enforceable.
