The purpose of a pre-nup is to separate designating assets owned before marriage. You can not separate assets acquired after marriage and before the pre-nup. If it is community property, it remains so. You do not provide sufficient information for any answer.

If you have a well-drafted trust you should be covered. Pre-nups are primarily for the eventuality of divorce.

If you are already married, it is too late for pre-marital settlement agreement (pre-nup). If your assets are held in trust, the trust agreement will control distribution of your respective estates. You may want to have your trust reviewed to ensure it does what you it to do.
