"Post-Separation" Agreement

Dear Catbird:

I believe that you are simply speaking of a separation agreement, which can be signed either shortly before or after the date of separation. These agreements, when properly executed, are enforceable by the court’s power. Best of luck!

I meant to word that “post-nuptial” agreement. They were papers he wanted me to sign 6 months after marriage.

What are “post-separation agreements” and how valid are they in court?
