Marital contracts, including prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements, require each party to have an attorney in order to ensure its validity.
To provide the best outcome for you, experienced family law attorney Christina Sherman at the Law Office of Christina Sherman in San Rafael will take the necessary time to ascertain your priorities and help you achieve your goals before, during and after a divorce, and for domestic partnerships.
- A prenuptial agreement is intended to protect what you have prior to a marriage — a contract between a couple which describes the distribution of assets and debts, spousal support, community contributions to separate property and other financial matters, in the event of a divorce.
- A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, but it is created after the couple has married.
- A cohabitation agreement defines the rights and responsibilities of unmarried people who are living together. Like a prenuptial agreement, it can strengthen a relationship by removing potential sources of conflict. Should the relationship end, it can protect the rights of one or both partners.
