Prenuptial Agreements and Postnuptial Agreements
LEGALLY PROTECTING YOUR ASSETS
Nobody ever gets married thinking that they will get divorced, but our experience has demonstrated that couples that do divorce do not regret working with a family law attorney on a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. Understanding that not all marriages last forever, many San Diego couples elect to protect their assets through a prenuptial agreement before they are married, or a postnuptial agreement after the couple is married.
Protection + Peace of Mind
When a couple is about to marry, though they don’t anticipate the marriage will end in divorce, having a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement in place often provides peace of mind, knowing they are protected in the event the marriage doesn’t turn out as expected.
Who Typically Enters
INTO A PRENUPTIAL OR POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENT
The decision on whether or not to enter into a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement is something that each party and each San Diego couple needs to determine. More often than not, however, those who seek a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement have significant assets, such as properties, investments, or an inheritance they want to protect. In addition, parties who own their own businesses also are often interested in pursuing a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement.
