Are Postnuptial Agreements Valid In California

The appointment of an experienced family law lawyer, who can ensure that the agreement contains an appropriate language and all necessary waivers and complies with the current conditions of the law on such agreements, is an important first step in the process of executing a post-marital contract. Many couples in California have heard of marriage before getting married and have even thought about it. However, many people are not as familiar with whistleblowing agreements and their use, which are governed by California Family Code Section 1500. Marriage contracts are concluded before a marriage specifying the property distinct from any close spouse, the division of property upon divorce, assistance to the spouse and other conditions that the parties may include in the agreement.
