Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial or a postnuptial agreement works to establish the terms of a settlement agreement either before or after parties enter into a marriage – in the event that during the marriage the parties decide to divorce or
legally separate. A prenuptial or a postnuptial agreement can play a positive role in strengthening marriages. These types of agreements allow a couple to define their marital arrangements on their own terms, rather than
accepting the default provisions of California community property law.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can each play an important role in asset protection during a marriage.
