The postnup can provide for alimony and property division. It can protect both spouses in whatever way the parties agree.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

My husband is demanding that I sign a postnup. It is our understanding that a postnup can address ED but not alimony. His mindset is that the longer we are married, the more alimony he will owe in the event of divorce (obviously he is expecting this to happen or he would not be so insistent).

My question is this: How far can a postnup go in terms of financial protection for the supporting spouse?

He is meeting with a lawyer again tomorrow and I have a feeling I am about to be blindsided. This man is emotionally abusive and unfaithful. I am not about to sign away my rights so as to enable him to continue his adulterous lifestyle unencumbered.

Thanks for any advice.
