Do We Need a Prenuptial Agreement?

Anyone engaged to be married can benefit from a prenup, not only wealthy celebrities.

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

Reasons to Get a Prenup

You should consider getting a prenup 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

So you've decided to get a prenup. You are likely wondering, "How do prenups work in California?" We're here to guide you through the process.

Before signing the agreement both you and your fiancé(e) 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, and 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.

However, the time it takes to draft a prenup is well worth it. 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?

Los Angeles prenuptial agreement successfully draftedPrenups 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 prenuptial agreement 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.

Please note: A prenup can easily be challenged in court if it is later revealed that one of the parties hid assets at the time the agreement was drafted.

California Prenup FAQ

Is California a Community Property State?

California is a community property state, which means that in the event of a divorce, all marital property is subjected to asset division.

Will a Judge Uphold a Prenup in California?

Yes, valid prenups are enforceable and will be upheld by a judge.

For a prenup to be valid, it must have been drafted according to state law. It must also have been signed by both parties willingly (not under duress).

What Makes a Prenuptial Agreement Invalid?

If either party failed to disclose any property, assets, debts, or other relevant information, the prenup will be considered invalid. A judge cannot and will not enforce such prenups.

Other reasons why a prenup would be considered invalid include:

  • The existence of a verbal contract that supplements the prenup
  • Either spouse included unfair terms in the prenup
  • One spouse signed the prenup under duress
  • The couple did not get legally married

To ensure that your prenup is valid, it is best to consult a knowledgeable prenuptial agreement attorney in Los Angeles.
