Unlike a prenuptial agreement, which is signed prior to the marriage, a postnuptial agreement is created after the couple has married. Sometimes couples draft postnuptial agreements because they did not have time to create one before they established the marriage, but like prenuptial agreements the contract is created to clearly define how assets and debts will be divided in the event of divorce.
Requirements for a Common Law Marriage in Colorado
In the State of Colorado, a couple living together in the same home for any period of time does not establish a common law marriage.
