Can A Premarital Agreement Be Written Ourselves?

Premarital – Prenuptial Agreements

Legally, you can write the prenuptial agreement yourself, but this
is not a good idea. A lawyer who specializes in family law
 is in the best position to advise you as to the advantages
 and pitfalls of certain provisions, how they can best be
 drafted to take into account your particular needs – and
 whether a premarital agreement is even good for your situation.

Should you wish to learn more about the legal process of divorce, here are a few important legal topics to consider:

Property Division

What is difference between community property and “separate property”? How is each allocated in divorce law? How are debts allocated to each spouse?

Spousal Support

How does a judge decide whether to award spousal support? What if the paying spouse dies or files for bankruptcy? What if the receiving spouse remarries?

Child Custody

How does a judge decide which spouse gets the child? What is “joint physical custody”? What is “joint legal custody”? What visitation rights does a non-custodial parent have?
