Premarital Agreement shall have no force or effect.
In executing a Premarital Agreement the parties can avoid or alter
current community property laws with regards to property already owned
by the parties prior to marriage.
While the Premarital Agreement provides that assets or property owned
by one of the spouses prior to the marriage remains the property of
that spouse upon the dissolution of the marriage (and our Premarital
Agreement allows for the full and complete disclosure of such property
or assets on easy-to-use schedules), the Agreement provides that any
asset or property acquired AFTER the marriage shall be owned by both
parties jointly, with the right of survivorship.
The Premarital Agreement provided with this software also states that
debts of one spouse shall not, before marriage, be the responsibility
of the other party to the Agreement after the marriage is entered into
and that debts of one spouse shall not, after the marriage, be the
responsibility of the other party to the Agreement without the other
spouse's written Agreement.
If you and your future spouse determine that creating a Premarital
Agreement will provide clarity, security and harmony as you move into
this new stage of your life, then the legal forms provided within this
Standard Legal Software package are for you.
