A pre-marital agreement is an agreement you reach with your future spouse regarding how property accumulated during the marriage is handled in the event of a divorce. It can be as simple as setting out that all property brought into the marriage stays the property of that spouse (called separate property), or as restrictive as preventing any property accumulated during the marriage as being community property.
Creating a solid premarital agreement is an effective way to ensure that your assets are protected in the event of a divorce. It is very important to hire an experienced attorney to draft your prenuptial agreement. If it is completed correctly, it will be virtually un-attackable.
