HASH(0xa3e5cfd8) out of 5 stars templates useful May 18 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The templates alone are worth the price of the book. Good advice about approaching this in a partnership spirit too. Saved us time and money.

HASH(0xa3e5d1ec) out of 5 stars Works for post-nuptial agreements too Dec 17 2013
By SG415SF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you live in the state of California and need a post-nup for any reason, both you and your spouse will need to retain counsel. During my quest to find legal representation for a post-nup, prior to purchasing a house, I came accross a number of lawyers who wanted to upsell for services. I was lucky enough to find a great lawyer who recommended I save a few bucks and start the process myself, using Nolo. You can use this book for post-nups, with just a few changes in the wording.

You can then have the 2 lawyers review your agreement and viola! you're done.

This book was incredibly helpful and the templates were easy to find online. The book does not come with CDs. The book is full of examples and I was able to find the example that perfectly suited my situation.

I should mention, however, that these nolo books are great! The only exception would be their book on estate planning. I'm just passing on what my lawyer told me.

HASH(0xa3e5d06c) out of 5 stars Great resource. June 6 2016
By Megan M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book and resource. Read the sample online before you buy it. The sample tells you exactly what the book covers, and will help you decide if the book is for you. You do not need to buy the book to get the forms. The link to the forms is in the sample. The book is great at explaining in layman's terms what each part of the document pertains to. So if you need that extra information, get it. When we submitted our prenup to our lawyers they were impressed with how perfectly it was written, and had no edits to make.

HASH(0xa443599c) out of 5 stars I realized that doing one is best for both of us Sept. 15 2015
By Tamara Vanderpool - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book extremely informative, the worksheets are very helpful in getting started. Doing a prenup can be intimidating too and it helped take some of the fear out of doing a prenup. I realized that doing one is best for both of us. I definitely recommend this book!
