Your wedding day has come and gone, and you never got around to drawing up that prenup agreement.
There is good news. If you and your spouse can agree on the parameters, it’s not too late to outline how your property will be classified, as community or separate, how your joint finances will be handled, and support for children from prior marriages —even if you’re already married. You can still accomplish this through a postnup agreement.
The sooner you create a postnup after the marriage, the easier it is. However, a postnup agreement can be done at any time, regardless of how long you have been married.
A postnup agreement even can be a tool in an estate plan to clearly delineate each spouse’s separate property if the plan for distribution of that separate property is different from the rest of the estate plan.
