Your amicable divorce might turn out to be contentious

For many Californian couples, happily ever after never happens. Many couples manage to end their marriages in an amicable manner. In fact, it has become so common that more and more people think they can handle the process without legal guidance. If you and your spouse both wish to divorce and are considering navigating the process on your own, you might be surprised at how challenging it can be.

Is a prenup a smart idea for your California marriage?

Sometimes prenups are sensationalized by the press, characterized as controversial contracts that can outrageously disinherit or deprive one spouse of assets or spousal support at divorce or death of the other spouse. On the contrary, once you take the stereotypes and emotion out, a prenuptial or premarital agreement can be a smart, solid tool for financial and estate planning that creates a predictable plan for disposition of assets brought in to or accumulated during the marital relationship.
