What Happens When Things Don't Work Out?

When they are in love and planning a marriage or domestic partnership, no couple wants to contemplate the possibility their relationship might not continue "happily ever after." However, if a couple cannot have meaningful conversations regarding money, property and finances before marriage, the probability of success for their marriage is slim.

A postnuptial agreement from our lawyers is similar to a prenuptial agreement, but it is drafted after a couple marries or enters into a registered domestic partnership. Just like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement can help couples plan financially, and in the event of a separation a postnuptial agreement can help make the dissolution go more smoothly.

Transmutation agreements are used to change the characterization of a specific property (for example, from community property to separate property, or from separate property to community property). A valid and enforceable transmutation agreement must meet very specific requirements under California law, which is where the knowledgeable assistance of our experienced family law attorneys can guide you through the process.

If you would like to discuss your specific concerns with one of our attorneys, we invite you to call our Los Angeles law office at 310-453-6226 or send us an email to arrange your consultation.
