Divorce, property division and the family home

Home may be where the heart is, but when a couple divorces, the home is not just a place with sentimental value -- it is often one of the couple's most financially valuable marital assets. Some spouses in California may be eager to leave what was a place filled with unhappy memories, while other spouses may be itching to stay established in the home they have been in for years, especially if they have custody of the children. However, there are important things to consider when it comes to the family home and divorce.

Why is a prenuptial agreement so valuable?

When a couple in California is planning to marry, they may envision sharing not just their lives, but also their property. Perhaps one party owns the house that they both will live in. Or, perhaps they will open a joint bank account, in which both their paychecks will be deposited. When a couple shares their financial lives, however, discord can occur that might lead to divorce and the subsequent division of assets. Couples can plan for this possibility by executing a prenuptial agreement before marrying.
