					This Post-Nuptial Agreement is a contract by which a married couple agrees that they
will keep their property separate, rather than allowing their individual property to become
community property. By executing this document, the parties waive the right to share in
each other's estate upon death, and waive the right to alimony and other forms of
spousal support. The document contains an exhibit where the parties can describe the
division of property in the event of a divorce. It sets forth a standard post-nuptial
agreement and may be customized to fit the specific needs of the parties. This should
be used by married spouses that want to keep their property separate.
