PRENUPTIAL AND POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Under the law, marriage is a contract between two people. California has a detailed set of laws that dictate how property should be divided if the marriage contract ends, but it is also possible to set your own terms by creating a legally binding prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Such an agreement allows a couple to set the terms of property rights for their marriage.
At Hart Ginney LLP we can guide you through the process of establishing a prenuptial agreement. If you are already married, we can do the exact same work in a postnuptial agreement. We will steer the discussion through important issues that might come up such as how your property might be divided in a divorce.
Besides providing for your own well-being and that of your spouse, another value of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements is the knowledge that you are protecting the inheritance rights of your children. No matter what happens in your marriage, you can rest assured that your children will receive whatever assets they are entitled to when the time comes to distribute them.
