Pre-nuptial agreements protect the average couple – not only the rich and famous. They are becoming more and more popular all the time.
The agreement is usually signed before the marriage takes place but can also be signed immediately afterwards. It provides details for dividing all property if the couple decides to divorce down the road. When signed by both parties, the agreement becomes a binding contract.
A pre-nuptial agreement does not have to be a bad experience – it can create a secure atmosphere for both parties. Although on the wedding day, a couple thinks they will be together forever. This does not always happen, especially in the State of California where the divorce rate is very high.
