While nobody wants to think of the subject, divorce is a very real possibility for many couples in the modern world. What will happen if things do not work out as planned?

A pre-marital agreement, also commonly referred to as a “prenup,” is a written contract spouses create before getting married which establishes solutions for issues that should arise in the event they should ever divorce. Though once thought to only be of benefit to the rich, prenups have become a commonly used legal tool for couples of all tax brackets and can be useful for a variety of purposes. Prenups are best thought of like an insurance policy: you hope to never use it, but will be happy to have it in the event of a worst case scenario.
Couples can decide nearly all divorce-related issues ahead of time with a prenup, including:
Generally speaking, prenups are enforceable by law as long as they are created with the knowing and voluntary consent of both spouses, signed, and are compliant with all California laws. Retaining separate and independent legal counsel for each spouse is highly recommended, and in some cases a legal requirement, to help ensure a prenup is legally binding.
Despite their negative reputation, prenups are simply a smart planning tool – not a ploy to lure happy couples into divorce court. Our Corona family lawyers can guide you step by step through the process of drafting your pre-marital agreement and help you enjoy your marriage with peace of mind. With compassionate support and an uncompromising dedication to preserving your interests, we can help you avoid a potential future messy dispute.
