Santa Clarita Prenups & Postnups

Premarital Agreements to Put Your Mind at Ease

Prenups and postnups are types of marital agreements which spell out how each spouse’s debts and assets, among many other things, are to be divided following a divorce or separation. Getting these types of marital agreements do not signify a lack of faith in the union any more than signing a contract with a future business partner signifies a lack of faith in the business venture. Rather, these agreements are simply a way for both parties to feel secure in their assets and gives them a framework from which to proceed should anything happen. The primary difference between these two agreements is simply when they are signed – a prenuptial agreement is entered into before a couple is married, and a postnuptial agreement is entered into after they are married.

If you and your partner are considering the benefits of these marital agreements, our Santa Clarita prenup attorney can field any questions you may have. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!

Premarital Agreements (Prenups)

A prenup is a contract which is legally binding and must be entered into willingly by both parties.

A few of the most common elements covered in the prenuptial agreements we draft include:

  • Assets, such as property holdings, retirement funds, and stocks
  • Debts
  • Business interests or ownership
  • Children from a previous marriage
  • Disparate income levels
  • Inheritance
  • Spousal support
  • Asset distribution in the event of the death of either spouse

The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act states that to be valid, these agreements must be submitted in writing, signed by each spouse before the marriage, include a disclosure of all liabilities and assets, and be signed in contemplation of marital union. Failure to abide by each of these conditions may result in the court voiding the agreement in the event of a divorce.
