 Marital Agreements

Premarital Agreements, Cohabitation agreements/pre-registration agreements

Clarify your decisions and agreements to help you each make appropriate decisions regarding savings, career goals/plans, sharing of assets and debts, property purchases/residential decisions. Act consistently to make sure the "paper" reality is consistent with the heartfelt reality!

Couples should consider whether California Family Law is a good fit for your particular
relationship.  Often it is not and modifications can be made through Agreements, either before or during a Marriage or a Domestic Partnership.

When is a marital agreement indicated?
Either a premarital or post marital agreement is suggested if:
  • Either or both of you owns separate property assets
  • Sharing income as community property would jeopardize SSI or other such payments for one of you
  • One has significant debts
  • You simply want to take advantage of the benefits of marriage but not the community property laws

I can help you either prepare or review such an Agreement at affordable rates.  Give me a call (310-209-8080) or an email  to get started or discuss your options.
