4. Get your worries and concerns out on the table.

One thing that builds enduring relationships is straightforwardness. If you don’t feel comfortable talking with your soon-to-be-spouse about money now, you might never be comfortable. Voice your concerns, and hear his or her concerns, and deal with them proactively.

5. Make sure that the prenuptial agreement follows California and federal law.

Property laws in California are very different from property laws in other states. To understand how federal and Golden State laws might apply to your case, connect with a California prenuptial lawyer to draft a sensible agreement.

6. Each party should talk to his or her own attorney.

So-called “dual representation” can be a recipe for unfairness. The idea that you and your spouse will each need a separate lawyer may seem formal and potentially scary. But this smart practice ensures you will both be protected.
