Much like a tremendous amount of thought goes into getting married, thoughtful and careful consideration goes into ending a marriage. While no couple in California or elsewhere gets married with the intention of getting divorced, the reality is that roughly half of all marriages end in divorce. Because of that, getting married also means considering the possibility of divorce.
There are many ways to go about facing this possible reality. For some couples, this means drafting prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. While these legal documents serve as a mechanism to confirm and validate what will happen in the event of a divorce, some couples decide to forego these documents in their union. At Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, our knowledgeable attorneys understand that talking about divorce is never easy. Because of that, our experienced legal team is prepared to help couples and spouses in the Marin County area with a wide variety of divorce issues.
Whether you seek to draft a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, enforce on during dissolution or initiate a divorce without either of these documents, our law firm is prepared to guide our clients through the divorce process every step of the way. This includes helping spouses understand how to draft a valid pre-nup or post-nup agreement, enforce these documents during dissolution or navigate the divorce process without these documents.
Ending a marriage means that spouses must come to terms on how property will be divided, who gets the family home, how alimony will be applied, whether a parent will owe child support and what a child custody arrangement will look like. Reaching a solution to these divorce issues may be easier with a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement; however, even with these documents, disputes can emerge. Thus, spouses need to be prepared to address these issues and come to an amicable resolution.
