What Is the Purpose of a Prenup?
Prenuptial agreements are legal documents that outline exactly what will occur with each spouse's assets and personal property in case of a future divorce. Without a "prenup," marital property will be divided according to California family law, which is a 50/50 division unless the two parties come to a different agreement—such as a prenup. Consult with an understanding Pasadena divorce lawyer from our firm right away to learn what property you can protect through a prenuptial agreement. You and your fiancé/fiancée will be able to have peace of mind about the future the moment your agreement is complete.
Why Should I Get a Prenup?
Don't think of a prenup as planning for divorce. Think of it as a way to make sure you are protected in the event something bad does happen. Some people think of a prenup as "insurance" for your marriage, similar to how you buy car insurance to protect yourself in case you are involved in an accident while driving.
Many people think of a prenup as a way to protect the higher earning party, but it's important to realize that your circumstances might change during the course of your marriage.
If you are the higher earning party, you might think that you don't need a prenup because your future husband or wife doesn't care about your money. Unfortunately, divorce brings out the worst in people. Even someone who claims to not care about your assets can have a change of heart in the middle of a messy divorce.
