Los Angeles Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys
Find Out How a Prenup Could Benefit You – Call (818) 962-4669
California is a community property state, which means that in the event of a divorce, all marital property is subjected to asset division. A prenuptial agreement, or “prenup,” 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 postnuptial agreements/postnups, 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.
Do You Need a Prenuptial 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 on the right strategy and draft a thoughtfully developed agreement.
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 Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement
A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can help speed up a divorce proceeding or may even avoid it altogether.
What's more, a prenup can help ensure that you are on the same page as your fiancé(e). You will each have a complete picture of the other's finances and debts, as well as a clear understanding of what the other expects should you part ways.
How to Get a Prenup in CA
Full disclosure of all your assets and debts will be required in order to minimize the chances of having a court set it aside. (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.)
Getting a prenup takes time. You have to obtain a lot of documentation related to your assets and debts. What's more, 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(e) are comfortable with the agreed-to terms
Do You Need a Lawyer for a Prenup?
Prenups 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. That's why, before signing the agreement, both you and your fiancé(e) should obtain counsel.
A prenup lawyer near you can ensure your prenuptial contract is airtight and that it protects your assets and interests.
