The Benefits of a Premarital or Postmarital Agreement

The purpose of a premarital or a postmarital agreement is to provide certainty regarding how issues will be resolved upon dissolution in order to avoid litigation and/or the application of California law. High-profile cases involving premarital and postmarital agreements led to changes in the law that have resulted in greater scrutiny of such agreements and of the legal representation available to each party. We carefully craft our agreements with this high standard in mind.

Premarital and Postmarital Considerations

  • The income earned during the marriage by either party and how it should be allocated
  • The rights and obligations regarding property acquired prior to marriage, and during marriage
  • The sale or transfer of any property in case of death, divorce or separation
  • Spousal support in the event of divorce
