Prenuptial Agreements are not just about what happens in the event of a divorce, but instead can provide a financial plan for the relationship and its future.
There are many different types of prenups. Some do away with community property entirely and replace it with another plan. Prenuptial agreements allow spouses to “opt out” of most or all community property rights prescribed under the law. Other agreements confirm what the parties have coming into the marriage and allow for sharing of income earned during marriage.
A prenuptial agreement can provide a financial plan for the marriage and help avoid financial dipsutes and struggles which are often cited as the number one reason couples split.
