Prenuptial Agreements

Don't Make A Move Without Knowing Your Options

Comprehensive Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Representation in Newark, CA

Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements, or prenups and postnups, are growing more common statewide as younger people are increasingly likely to use them. While these agreements used to carry more of a negative stigma, people are now beginning to realize the ramifications of entering a legal contract — such as a marriage — without actually taking the time to consider that contract. Prenups and postnups give you a chance to do so.

Benefits of a Marital Agreement

While prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can never address things like child custody and child support, there are still many benefits. For instance:

  • A prenup can help protect your company in the event of a divorce.
  • A prenup can protect your estate, making it a valuable part of your estate planning as you strive to keep important assets in the family. We can help with comprehensive asset and property protection.
  • A prenup can ensure you are not responsible for your partner’s debts.
  • A prenup can protect your retirement assets so that you can still retire on time.
  • A prenup gives you both peace of mind. You can make rational decisions about what is best for your future, knowing you are financially protected no matter the outcome.
  • A prenup covers you as the divorce rate stays high. Even though you do not go into marriage thinking you will get divorced, you cannot ignore the statistics.
  • A prenup allows you to create unique provisions for your unique relationship. For instance, some couples have drafted prenups giving a direct payment to one spouse if the other is not faithful to the marriage.

Postnups can accomplish all of these tasks as well. Overall, marital agreements allow you to draft the contract you want for your marriage. Would you start a business without a contract and a partnership agreement? Most likely not. Why would you look at marriage any differently?
