  • Community vs. marital property. Because California is a community property state, this means that upon divorce, the courts will decide in a particular way how marital assets will be divided. In order to prevent this division of property, a prenup can include certain preferences for certain assets (e.g., Kanye can keep all his Wayfarer sunglasses, Kim can keep all her hair extensions).
  • Of course, there are also things that can't be listed in a prenup -- like child custody or alimony waivers. The future Wests should probably consult a family law attorney to ensure that their prenup is proper.
