Why Choose a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement?
Without one, California community property laws will decide how to divide your assets during a marriage. If you would rather the Court not split property 50/50 between both parties of the marriage, these documents can allocate these pieces of property differently.
A prenuptial agreement can accomplish several goals:
- Declare what property is community and what is separate
- Declare what debt will remain the separate obligation of a party
- Protect or divide business interests
- Provide for a set amount of spousal support, or waive the right to spousal support
Or, perhaps you are already married and you think that a postnuptial agreement might be in you and your spouse’s best interests. The most common reason for a postnuptial agreement is if the parties wish to separate but not divorce. A postnuptial agreement can stop additional assets gained after marriage from becoming community property or provide for spousal support. Sometimes, if one spouse receives an opportunity for a partnership or equity in a business, the company may require the person to have a postnuptial agreement to avoid having the business entangled in a future divorce.
