Marriage contracts or marital contracts, including prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements, require each party to have an attorney in order to ensure their validity.

She also works with clients regarding domestic partnerships. Christina Sherman serves clients throughout Marin County and Sonoma County.
- A prenuptial agreement is intended to protect the assets you have prior to a marriage — it is 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.
