What to Know About Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are legal tools to protect assets, define financial expectations, and establish guidelines for property division in the event of divorce or death. You can create a prenuptial agreement before marriage; on the other hand, you may establish a postnuptial agreement after marriage. These marital agreements can concern all kinds of assets, inheritances, business interests, and debts.

Why Would You Want to Create a Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreement?

Marital agreements are beneficial for clarifying expectations and fostering communication between spouses. They require couples to be open and honest with each other and collaborate to create a mutually beneficial agreement. This level of communication can help spouses feel more confident in their future. 

Other benefits of marital agreements include:

  • Avoiding California community property laws, which may require divorcing couples to apportion assets in ways that do not serve their best interests
  • Simplifying the process of deciding what to do with a family business’s management and operations in the event of a divorce 
  • Deciding how to fairly allocate debts before or during the marriage, preventing one spouse from bearing more than their fair share of the financial burden

Are There Things You Cannot Put in a Marital Agreement?

California law does not allow marital agreements to create enforceable terms for child support, parenting time, and custody. Similarly, the law does not permit waiving spousal support rights. Should an agreement contain provisions that concern these and other non-permissible matters, the state’s courts could consider the entire document void.
