Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Although no one enters a marriage expecting it to eventually fall apart, the reality is that over 50% of marriages in the United States end in divorce. Because of this statistic, California allows couples to enter into prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in case a happily ever after does not happen.
Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements also help in creating a clear division of assets with the opportunity of protecting yourself from California’s property laws. The agreement gives protection for your financial future. It helps to limit the future financial burdens and helps limit the spousal support liability. It is an imperative legal document and to safely protect yourself it makes sense to work with a professional. When it comes to finances and the future impact that divorce can have, don’t work with someone who does not have an extensive background in navigating these complexities.
