Before you get married, it makes sense to protect what you’ve built prior to your marriage. California law allows agreements in these situations, but there are deadlines and requirements that need to be kept in mind. Once married, a Post-Nuptial Agreement allows you to settle your affairs and assets before a separation or divorce. The attorneys at HFLG have experience in drafting Premarital and Post-Nuptial Agreements that meet the requirements under the law with flexibility for each couples’ needs.

Premarital Agreements

When contemplating marriage you should also want to protect your assets and business interests. A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract that two parties sign before they enter into the institution of marriage. The contract describes what will happen with a couple’s assets and debts should the marriage end in divorce. California law allows for these agreements to preserve those rights and responsibilities as long as certain procedures and time constraints are followed. HFLG has prepared dozens of premarital agreements protecting client's past wealth while providing clear guidance for their future marriage.

Post-Nuptial Agreements

There are times in a marriage when one of the parties wants to protect themselves from the other’s decisions. A Post-Nuptial Agreement drafted by the HFLG attorneys can help parties engage in a business transaction, manage inherited assets, or engage in other activities while setting expectations and managing results.
