The Need For A Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement allows you to put all the cards on the table and start married life on the same page. If you own a successful business or investment property, this may be important. For instance, you could agree that rental earnings from the separate investment property do not become community property over the course of the marriage.
Because each situation is different, it is important to obtain legal counsel from an experienced family law attorney.

What A Prenuptial Agreement Can And Cannot Do
You can agree on many property division issues such as:
Management and control of property
Division of property upon divorce or death of a spouse
Prenups cannot adversely affect child support. Provisions that are children-related are unlikely to hold up and would be reviewed by a court to determine what is in the best interests of the child. In addition, these agreements cannot violate public policy or state law or be used to defraud creditors.
