Orange County prenuptial agreement help

A prenuptial agreement is not ones’ idea of a loving marriage/domestic partnership since such an arrangement dictates envisioning dissolution. Nonetheless, a prenuptial agreement is wise and practical, as it both creates and safeguards your property rights as you arrive into a marriage/domestic partnership. Moreover, such an understanding can remove possible friction by explaining how particular financial and property issues will be treated both for the duration of the marriage/domestic partnership and upon a dissolution of marriage.


Prenuptial agreements can cover numerous circumstances, such as:

• Deciding who will possess the main dwelling, vacation homes, etc.

• Determining the future of your properties in the occurrence of passing, divorce, break up, and/or the event of a particular occurrence (such as gambling addiction, drugs, affair…by a party).

• Deciding how previous debt of the parties will be distributed.

• Waiving or modifying spousal support/alimony.

Prenuptial agreements are especially helpful when one or both parties to a marriage/domestic partnership possess considerable investments, assets and/or real and personal property.

The object of a prenuptial agreement is to afford individuals who foresee entering into a marriage/domestic partnership with a clear-cut description of how particular issues will be decided upon dissolution, with the purpose of preventing litigation should a case for dissolution be launched. Participants may also enter into an ante-nuptial arrangement, which is an arrangement entered into during marriage/domestic partnership that considers dissolution and describes how matters will be determined should the marriage/domestic partnership be terminated. Ante-nuptial arrangements are exposed to the identical legal rules, and have the same outcome, as prenuptial agreements.

A prenuptial arrangement distinguishes property brought into a marriage/domestic partnership; how assets and income obtained during the marriage/domestic partnership will be considered, and who has a legal right to control separate property. The prenuptial agreement can elect that specific property and income is to continue as separate property of one party and can also adjust or avoid the application of community property laws in upon dissolution. Furthermore, these arrangements may contain conditions for the splitting up of debt, division of real property, life insurance, medical coverage, and the payment of spousal support upon dissolution.
