Prenuptial agreementCalifornia is a community property state, which means that in the event of a divorce, all marital property is subjected to asset division. A pre-nuptial contract may not be something you and your soon to be spouse want to think about, but it is an important and helpful legal tool that can provide you both peace of mind and assurance.

Prenups, as well as post-nuptial agreements, can offer stability and protection of your assets should divorce or death occur. They are a wise means of protecting what you have worked so hard to build.

Our Los Angeles prenup lawyers can evaluate your case to determine how a prenuptial agreement can help you. Call (818) 962-4669 or contact us online!

Do We Need a Prenuptial or Post-Nuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement between spouses can build a solid groundwork in the event of a failed marriage. Our Los Angeles prenup attorneys can help you decide the right strategy and draft a thoughtfully developed prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement.

You should consider getting a prenup or post-nuptial agreement if:

  • You own or co-own a business or practice
  • You may receive a large inheritance
  • You expect to see a large increase in income
  • You have valuable property, such as real estates, stocks, etc.
  • You have loved ones who need a secure financial future

The Prenuptial Agreement Process in CA

Before signing the agreement both you and your fiancé will need to obtain counsel. Full disclosure of all your assets and debts will be required in order to minimize the chances of having a court set it aside. This process takes time – you have to obtain a lot of documentation related to your assets and debts, the exchange process that occurs in order to review and revise the proposed agreement takes time. You also have to have time to think through and fully agree to the terms. You will be less likely to challenge anything in the agreement if both you and your fiancé are comfortable with the agreed-to terms.

Do I Need a Lawyer for a Prenup?

Shaking hands over a prenupPrenups are complex legal contracts. If a prenup is not at least reviewed by a lawyer, then it could contain mistakes that result in the contract doing more harm than good. Prenup lawyers can ensure your pre-nuptial contract is airtight and that it protects your assets and interests.

A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can help speed up a divorce proceeding or may even avoid it altogether. If both parties have decided to proceed with a marital agreement, it is essential for both parties to fully trust each other to disclose their finances. A prenup or post-nuptial agreement can easily be challenged in court if it later revealed that one of the parties hid assets at the time the agreement was drafted.
