Attorneys for Los Angeles County Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements
While many couples choose to create a premarital agreement during their engagement, it is also possible to create a marital agreement during marriage, called a postnuptial agreement.
Prior to marriage, creating a premarital agreement allows you to determine things like separate property and community property on your own, rather than allowing it to be determined according to California law. A premarital agreement can be beneficial to any couple with significant assets, significant debts, a previous marriage or previous children, or any couple who wants to have more control over their property. Premarital agreements can be changed or invalidated during the course of a marriage and usually require the assistance of a California family law attorney for each party.
