One of the first things you should understand about prenuptial agreements is that they are not for everybody. For many clients, they can cause an unnecessary amount of stress before a marriage has taken place. Working with an experienced attorney like me, David Schwartz, can help you determine if a prenuptial agreement is right for you and your future spouse.At my office in Rancho Bernardo, California, I help clients of all different circumstances decide if they want to negotiate a prenuptial agreement.

California’s laws governing prenuptial agreements are more liberal than many other states. One of the few things that you cannot do with a prenuptial agreement is to waive child support payments. Here in San Diego County or throughout California, you can use a prenuptial agreement to determine:
- Spousal support
- Child custody and visitation
- Property division
Prenuptial agreements can be useful tools for older adults who have already accrued a great deal of assets on their own or who want to protect certain assets for adult children. As your attorney, however, my job is to protect your rights and best interests. If your spouse presents you with a prenuptial agreement that I think is unfair to you, I will advise you against signing it.
