PreNup/PostNup

When marrying people the question is NOT what most people ask: ‘Do I need a prenuptial agreement?’

The correct question is:

‘Everyone should get premarital planning to understand what happens under law to married couples. Then they can decide: would we benefit from a prenuptial agreement varying the standard marriage terms?’

Marriage is usually one of the two most important legal decisions people make over their entire life; and almost always without consulting a lawyer or learning the law. Prenuptial planning also assists trust and estate planning, not just divorce. And it is the only license the state of Cal. gives without a study booklet, required course, and test!

If California licensed drivers this way, half would also lose their right to drive!
