Knowledgeable, Experienced Attorney's Advice on Separate and Commingled Assets
Prenuptial agreements (prenups) are effective when they are well-written by a knowledgeable, experienced family law attorney. Prenuptial agreements can eliminate the trials and tribulations of going through a contested divorce. A prenuptial agreement can be an effective document setting forth your wishes before entering marriage — to protect your assets in the event of a divorce.
The court can carry through the provisions of the prenuptial agreement, and you will be adequately protected from distribution of your premarital assets. This type of agreement provides peace of mind for people entering marriage with children from previous relationships and/or substantial premarital assets.

Segregating separate interests in property is important — if you want to preserve your right to these assets — if the relationship ends. If assets are commingled, they will be deemed marital assets by the court. To effectively keep your separate assets from being commingled, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney.
It is unethical for a family law attorney to represent both parties to a prenuptial agreement. Therefore, it is important for each party to the agreement to have his or her own attorney to best protect his or her interests. Even a situation in which one party passes money through a joint account for a very brief period, and then takes it out to invest, could give rise to the presumption that the funds are commingled and, therefore, joint marital property.
