Our dedicated team at Alternative Divorce Solutions have the training and knowledge necessary to help build a marital agreement tailored to your unique needs.

What Marital Agreements Cover

Both pre- and postnuptial agreements are most effective when customized to suit your needs and goals.

The issues these agreements address may include:

  • Obligations and rights to property that either or both spouses own
  • Rights to encumber, lease, rent, or sell property
  • How property should be distributed following a death or divorce
  • A fair spousal support schedule, if applicable
  • Which state law will control your divorce (this is particularly important for same-sex couples)
  • Who should serve as beneficiary of any life insurance policy
These matters are extremely important, and having them decided ahead of time can save a great deal of trauma and stress in the event of death or divorce.

The Importance of Marital Agreements

The essence of marital agreements of any kind come down to encouraging open communication about critical issues in order to minimize conflicts regarding business interests, money, or property gained before the marriage. These issues are some of the leading causes of divorces in the state of California.

Additionally, these agreements can help to protect beneficiaries and overall ensure that your estate plan is in good order. They can help determine what is considered separate or joint property and how the assets should be divided. Not only can this make the divorce process more straightforward, it also takes a few worries off of your plate in the event of an untimely death.

“First and foremost, I found that I had a lot to learn about the divorce mediation process. I did not exactly know what the role of the mediator was or if we would still have to go to Court.”

– Donald B.

“I was so stressed out before I went to ADS. Once I got there Lani sat with me and my husband and explained the whole mediation process. After I left I knew exactly what to expect and ADS lived up to my expectations.”
