Family law question.
My parents own some rental properties. They have placed them under a living trust so that they would pass down to my sister and I in the future.
I met with a lady who might become my wife in 1 year.
Since the rental properties belong to my parents, we would inherit them in the future and therefore they would be my separate property.
What are the actions that I can take to avoid them from becoming community property, besides NOT adding her name under title to avoid transmutation; spending community property labor, time, funds for them after I inherit them, depositing all rents into a separate account to avoid commingling of funds? Finally, do I need a prenup ?

I am sure I answered this one before with a resounding yes you should get a prenuptial agreement. The prenuptial agreement would be written to avoid the transmutation.
