Drafting And Reviewing Your Marital Agreements In California
Whether you have put together a contract by yourself, have had one prepared by another person or simply need to create prenuptial or postnuptial contract from scratch, I can help. I can also explain the importance of these contracts to your relationship. There are many advantages to having a marital agreement, including:
- Changing the characterization of an asset acquired during marriage
- Protecting inheritance rights of children from past relationships
- Ensuring your property is protected
- Specifying which assets belong to whom
- Safeguarding family business interests
- Specifying support concerns should a divorce arise
Postnuptial agreements can satisfy all of the same needs as a prenuptial agreement, only postnuptial contracts are drafted after a couple is already married. It is important to have a skilled attorney in your corner, however, because these contracts are difficult to draft properly so that they will hold up in a court of law. You can rely on my firm to listen to your concerns and draft an agreement tailored to your needs.
