While no one plans to eventually divorce or separate, when a partner enters a marriage or domestic partnership with significant income, assets or property, he or she needs to be prepared in the event that the relationship should end. A prenuptial agreement or domestic partnership agreement is an effective way to keep personal property separate from community property and to establish a mutual agreement regarding spousal support.
At Family Law Group, LLP, we encourage all couples entering into a marriage or domestic partnership to draft a legal agreement for their relationship. From offices in Livermore, we serve clients throughout the Bay Area.
Premarital and post-marital agreements will help you stay in control of your money and property, and avoid conflict. If you are already married or living with your partner, you can still create an agreement regarding the division of property and support if the relationship should end. However, there are different rules and limitations for these types of "postnuptial" agreements, so it is important to consult an experienced family law attorney for assistance.
