A postnuptial agreement is not a document you sign because you're planning to get divorced. We create postnuptial agreements for couples who plan to stay together.
Because a postnuptial agreement addresses the conflict and difficulties a couple is expreriencing and develops a plan to solve the problems, a postnuptial agreement can help heal and strengthen the marriage. A postnuptial agreement can be set up to include the terms you need to feel safe and secure remaining married.
However, if you do end up separating or divorcing, the terms of the agreement can govern what will happen. For instance, if one spouse runs up gambling debts, the agreement might require the spouse to attend marriage and addiction counseling, and specify that if the couple separates, the spouse who incurred the debts will be solely responsible for a loan taken out to repay those debts.
