– from Emily J. in South Milwaukee, WI
Before we got married, my husband and I agreed to a prenuptial agreement. After years of marriage, we decided to make a postnuptial agreement that nullified the prenuptial one. Soon after that agreement, my husband asked me to quit my job. I couldn’t imagine a divorce at the time, so I agreed. All of my past earnings went into our joint account. About a year ago, I became ill and now I need assistance. Now my husband wants a divorce. According to the postnuptial agreement, I will have nothing and I have no means of working. After living well-off for years, I will be essentially homeless and living off of government assistance. Is a postnuptial agreement the last word in a divorce?
