Protecting Your Rights In Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Under the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act, California law provides that couples who are contemplating marriage or domestic partnership may enter into a written agreement to define their rights, duties and obligations concerning property, debts and spousal support obligations, provided that certain disclosure and other requirements are satisfied. For couples who have already married or formed a domestic partnership, a postnuptial agreement may carry out these same goals.

Have You Been Asked To Sign A Prenup?

If your wife-, husband- or partner-to-be has presented you with a prenuptial agreement, it is critical that you understand what you are signing. Are you giving away your right to a just distribution of property, spousal support and other vital interests? Has your fiancé(e) provided you with sufficient information so you can make an informed decision as to whether to sign the agreement?  If retained as your counsel, our attorneys will carefully review the proposed prenuptial agreement, advise you of your rights and put you in a position to make an informed decision.
