There are three forms of marital-type contracts: cohabitation, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Heterosexual and same-sex couples unmarried but living together often seek a cohabitation agreement to define and protect their separate property assets. Those who are about to marry or enter into a domestic partnership agreement often first enter into prenuptial agreements. People who have previously been divorced often choose to enter into prenuptial agreements prior to remarrying to protect assets and provide for children from prior marriages. Married couples who wish to protect certain assets as their separate property that would otherwise be considered community property, enter into what is known as a postnuptial agreement. Put simply a postnuptial agreement is just a prenuptial agreement entered into during marriage. The latter marital contract can be entered into any time after the marriage takes place including even decades later.
In anticipation of marriage, those who first live together may want to have a family law attorney draw up a joint cohabitation and prenuptial agreement after they have moved in together. Often times, successful business people, athletes, celebrities, actors and musicians opt for postnuptial agreements in order to protect their earned assets and those on the horizon, especially when their once fledgling careers have finally blossomed. However, a prenuptial agreement is always preferred over a postnuptial agreement if there is a choice because prenuptial agreements are presumed by the Court to be valid while postnuptial agreements are presumed to be invalid.
Parties who enter into marital contracts may never actually need them, yet having such an agreement in place can provide both parties invaluable peace of mind. When considering that more than 50 percent of all California marriages end in divorce, having a martial contract may be your smartest investment.
