Los Angeles Premarital Agreements

Studies show that clarity about financial roles, responsibilities, and expectations can actually deter marital conflict and divorce. Financial transparency and honesty are critical to a successful marriage.

 

Premarital agreements, also known as prenuptial agreements, afford couples the opportunity to discuss and agree on important financial issues, including money management, financial health, and estate planning, prior to marriage.

Premarital agreements help you protect your family's future and customize arrangements on your own terms, rather than leaving it up to the California Family Code.

The best practice is to have a prenuptial agreement with the hope that it will never be used.

 

"Emily did a wonderful job as my attorney . She was thoughtful and stayed in constant contact over the period of a few months until the prenuptial was complete and ready to be signed. Emily put in extra effort to help me."

When a couple gets married, they have two choices.  They can either ​enter into the marriage subject to the state laws that govern it, however those laws may change in the future, or they can enter into the marriage with a prenuptial agreement and choose their own rules to govern their relationship.

The content of a prenuptial agreement is highly customizable and can vary widely.

Common terms involve assets and spousal support. Premarital agreements often include provisions relating to business interests, intellectual property, financial accounts, real estate, stocks, inheritance, earnings during marriage, and more.

In addition, couples can choose to customize terms based on future circumstances during the marriage, for example, different terms can go into place if the couple have children or are married for a certain length of time.

Hiring a Premarital Agreement Attorney in Los Angeles

Prenuptial agreements can be highly technical.

 

For example, California law has specific requirements regarding the terms included in premarital agreements and the timing of the final draft.

 

Further, there are special rules about each spouse having independent counsel. Each spouse having their own attorney helps to shows that the prenuptial agreement has been voluntarily and knowingly executed.

 

Whether a client seeks to protect separate assets such as an inheritance, a business, or real estate, they want to ensure that the prenuptial agreement has been done correctly, promptly, and with personalized attention.
