Young couples typically spend the weeks before their wedding planning the ceremony, the reception, and the honeymoon.

Learn More About Your Agreement Options

A prenuptial agreement and postnuptial agreement serve a similar purpose. However, you draft a prenuptial agreement before your wedding, and you draft a postnuptial option after your wedding. Both documents accomplish the following:

  • Outline all the property and financial assets each spouse brought to the marriage.
  • Stipulate who gets which financial assets in the event of a separation.
  • Clarify whether or not a spouse can use a partner’s financial assets during the marriage.
  • Protect spouses from each other’s debts.
  • Explain if one spouse will receive alimony and child support during a divorce.
  • Allow property from one spouse to pass to children or dependents from a prior marriage.
  • Outline child custody in some cases.

If you want to plan for any of the points in the above list, contact Paul Moore Law in West Los Angeles, CA to draft an agreement.
