Is a Premarital Agreement Right for You?
California state law requires that community property is equally divided between parties. A premarital agreement stating otherwise can state other directives for the distribution of property, assets, and debt between the divorcing spouses. But is a premarital agreement right for everyone? For many couples, a premarital agreement may be advisable in situations involving multiple marriages, children from other marriages, and marriages later in life.
Postnuptial agreement is established at some point during the course of the marriage. The reasons a person or couple may wish to establish such an agreement vary. For some, they did not have time before the wedding date to draft the agreement. For others, a problem or major change in the relationship may merit an agreement.
