Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements in Orange County

Providing a Pathway to a Healthier Marriage

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our Orange County divorce mediator can help you and your spouse create a marital agreement tailored to your marriage. Both prenuptial agreements, which are made before you are married, and postnuptial agreements, or those made during your marriage, can help you define rights, responsibilities, and help protect you in the event of death or divorce.

What Do Marital Agreements Cover?

Pre- and postnuptial agreements can and should be customized to your unique situation.

You should keep your goals in mind when drafting a marital agreement. Issues addressed can include:

  • Rights and obligations to property that one or both spouses own
  • The right to sell, rent, lease, or encumber property
  • How your property will be distributed after a death or divorce
  • Settling a fair spousal support schedule, if any
  • The choice of what state law will control your divorce, an issue especially important to same-sex couples
  • Who should be beneficiary of your life insurance policy
  • Other important financial matters

Deciding on these important issues from the outset of your marriage can save your family a great deal of emotional turmoil when you are already going through the stress of death or divorce. When you speak to our Orange County mediator, we can help you come up with a solid plan to help minimize potential disagreements and put the control in your hands.

Why Are Marital Agreements Important?

Both pre- and postnuptial agreements encourage communication about important issues and minimize conflicts over money, business interests, and property gained before your marriage, which are some of the leading causes of divorces in California.

In addition, marital agreements can help protect inheritance to future generations, children from prior marriages, and agree to issues involved in your estate plan. Separate and joint property can be established and all decisions about how your assets will be divided can be settled. This can not only make divorces less contentious but give you one less thing to worry about in the event of an untimely death.
