While the concept of marriage or a domestic partnership in Orange County generally begins with the best of intentions as the couple plans to stay together, it's an unfortunate reality that family legal issues often arise and lead to a parting of the ways. This can be because of a dispute or a simple fact of growing apart with it falling anywhere in between. One of the most important factors in a divorce or decision to end a domestic partnership is to have a grasp on family law and how the property will be divided, where children - if any - will live, how child support will be allocated and many other issues.
When a couple in California marries, many take the step of putting prenuptial agreements -- also known as premarital agreements -- in place in the event of divorce. While this is a legal agreement that is written into state law, there are also subsets that can render it unenforceable. Those who are counting on a prenuptial agreement to have an idea as to how the divorce legal issues will be navigated might be surprised when they discover that certain acts could sabotage it.
