Premarital & Postmarital Agreements
Contact Us : 619-232-2050
Couples planning to marry often wonder whether they should enter into a premarital agreement. These agreements can identify and memorialize what separate property they already possess, as well as alter the normal operation of law in the creation and acquisition of property after marriage which under California law would otherwise be their community property. A premarital agreement can, within limits, also alter, limit or specify how spousal support would be determined if the couple subsequently divorced.
In some instances, couples who are married nevertheless wish to change the character of their property from community property to their respective separate property or vice-versa. With a properly drafted agreement and being fully advised, these property realignments can be made.
