Pre-Marital Agreements

Hero Image for Pre-Marital Agreements

Some couples may ask, “Why sign a pre-nup?” A Pre-nuptial agreement is designed to save litigation time and costs in the event of a divorce. Pre-nuptial agreements offer peace of mind, clarity, and security. They allow two people who are contemplating marriage to enter into a clear written agreement that controls how certain financial matters will be dealt with during marriage, upon death, and in the event of a divorce. Knowing what to expect can strengthen a marriage.

 

California law regarding prenuptial agreements is complex, and navigating the law requires experience and attention to detail. Pre-nuptial agreements must meet many requirements to be valid under California state law and we use precision, experience and care to ensure these requirements are met.

 

A pre-nuptial agreement will identify property brought into the marriage, it controls how income acquired during the marriage will be handled, and manages separate properties. Prenuptial agreements also include provisions for the division of debt, division of real property, medical coverage, life insurance, and the payment of spousal support upon dissolution.

 

We regularly draft pre-marital agreements and bring the necessary experience and knowledge to our clients' (individual cases) prenuptial agreements.  Furthermore, we understand the sensitive nature of these negotiations and we are skilled at protecting our clients' interests while still protecting the relationship.
