Pre-marital Agreements

Pre-marital agreements, also known as “pre-nups”, are contracts entered into prior to marriage. The state of California has default laws that apply to married people, for instance that all income earned during marriage is community property. A pre-marital agreement allows a couple to create their own laws and not be subject to the default state laws. The content of a pre-nuptial agreement is specific to the couple but commonly includes provisions that deal with division of assets and spousal support in the event of a divorce. Tricia’s 40 years of experience doing divorces and drafting pre-marital agreements makes her particularly skilled in the sophisticated drafting of these important legal documents.
