Diligent Family Law Firm Helps Clients Establish Prenuptial and Post-nuptial Agreements in San Mateo and the Bay Area

Helping clients protect their assets before and after a marriage

Establishing a prenuptial agreement is important for couples who are about to become legally married, but want to safeguard their assets should they ever divorce. At the Law Offices of Lisa M. Dugoni, APC, we help clients in San Mateo, San Jose and throughout the Bay Area draft prenuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements in their best interest moving forward. California's community property laws are very strict, but a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement in place gives you the peace of mind you deserve.

The benefits of prenuptial agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a legal document signed before the marriage takes place that establishes what is to be done with your money, property and assets in the event of a divorce. This is an important step for clients to take if they want to avoid the high costs and stress of court should their marriage end in divorce.

The benefits of post-nuptial agreements

Post-nuptial agreements are established during a marriage, as opposed to before a marriage. Postnuptial agreements work best for clients who accumulate expensive assets during the course of their marriage and wish to protect them. It's also beneficial for clients experiencing marital difficulties and want to come up with an asset division plan that avoids the court process during a divorce. Our experienced pre- and postnuptial agreement attorneys guide you through the paperwork involved and answer any questions you may have.

Property at risk without a prenuptial agreement

Property owned before marriage may be treated as community property without a prenuptial agreement in place. Some assets at risk for this treatment are:

  • Residential homes
  • Vacation homes
  • Businesses
  • Investment and bank accounts
