What’s a Post Nup?

Cindy Best

Have you ever heard of a prenup agreement? Couples sometimes write these agreements to spell out property agreements before marriage and decide what property is sole and separate and whether they want to opt out of the community property laws in Arizona. Sometimes a pre nup also outlines any issues about spousal maintenance. The idea is to detail the financial arrangement during the marriage and if there is a divorce…it outlines who gets what so you don’t fight in court. So a post nup is the same idea except it is written after a couple is married. It details who everything belongs to, including debt. There is a pre nup statute but no post nup statute. The best advice is for both parties to have a consult with separate experienced attorneys so you know what’s what.
