Premarital agreements establish, in advance, how property will be treated or divided at the time of a divorce or death. They also can limit the amount of spousal support that will be paid if the parties divorce. There are many different types of prenups – some do away with community property entirely and replace it with another plan. Other agreements confirm what the parties have coming into the marriage and allow for sharing of income earned during marriage. Premarital agreements have a significant emotional component. It is a time when people who are in love are forced to address difficult financial issues. We understand the difficult nature of these agreements and are able to handle them professionally while helping you keep your relationship intact.
