Protecting your interests, both financial and emotional.

Prenuptial Agreements and Post-Nuptial Agreements

The Time To Protect Your Wealth Is Before the Wedding

If you are considering entering into a marriage or domestic partnership, protecting your personal assets is the responsible thing to do for your children and the heirs to your estate. Prenuptial agreements are a staple of our practice. Unfortunately, many people don’t understand the consequences of community property law in California. Prenuptial agreements can protect the characterization of an estate if a party wishes to retain the separate characterization of assets. Consequently, premarital agreements and even post-nuptial agreements must be clearly worded to protect the assets of the parties.

Judges often consider the time in which a prenuptial agreement was executed.
A poorly crafted prenup signed a few weeks before the wedding is likely to be looked at with suspicion. Prenuptial agreements take time to complete. Six months or more is not unusual.
