Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements Can Help Prevent Future Disputes

Having a clear and well-communicated understanding with your future spouse about the expectations about sharing income and property can be beneficial to both of you.

California is a community property state in which community property law prevails. You and your partner may elect to make your own choices about how to share accumulated wealth. Your Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements can provide transparent expectations and peace of mind concerning estate planning, tax issues and changes to interpersonal relationships.

Postnuptial agreements allow parties who are already married to enter into contracts that depart from California law. This mechanism is used to create agreements affecting whether property or income is separate or community. Many couples who have been married for a few months or a few years take advantage of this option for the same reason as those who draft a Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements — to lay out clear expectations and protections for their marriage going forward.
