Creating A Contract For Your Marriage

A prenuptial agreement is one that you sign prior to your marriage, while a postnuptial agreement can be signed even if you are already married. Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements give you a chance to set up a marriage contract the way you want it to be. While getting married in modern culture is often discussed as simply an emotional situation based on love and affection, you cannot overlook the legal contract that it creates and the way it impacts your individual rights. These agreements give you some control over this impact by referencing things like:

  • Division of joint assets
  • Protection of business assets
  • Protection of an estate
  • Division of retirement savings

For instance, perhaps you are getting married at a later stage in life. You already own a business, and you have significant personal assets. You want to protect those assets so that your estate goes to your adult children and so that a divorce does not financially impact your company. You can do both things with a prenuptial or a post-nuptial agreement

The Benefits

When you work with us at Genesis Family Law, in Chula Vista, and San Diego, California, to create the agreement, you get a number of benefits. These include:
