What is a Postmarital Agreement?

What is a postmarital agreement you ask? It is an agreement that is made after a couple marries, unlike a premarital agreement that occurs before marriage.

At any time during marriage, spouses may partition or exchange between themselves all or part of their community property, then existing or to be acquired, as they desire. A partition and exchange agreement that occurs after marriage is also known as a “postmarital agreement.”

Like a premarital agreement, a postmarital agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
