Torrnace Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer
Esteemed Legal Advice in Torrance, CA
Contrary to the common misunderstanding, it isn't just certain couples
or those with high incomes who stand to benefit from a full financial
disclosure and arrangement prior to marriage in the form of a prenuptial
or postnuptial agreement. Signing a document ensuring the fair distribution
of assets in a
divorce doesn't mean you don't trust your partner - rather, it is an extra
precautionary measure, much like fire or health insurance.
At Patricia Barberis, A Law Corporation, we recommend that every couple
consider protecting their interests, assets, and rights by signing a prenuptial
or postnuptial agreement - particularly if this is not your first marriage
or if you have children from a former marriage. If retained, a
Torrance family law attorney from our firm will help you look over the reality of your current financial
situation and discuss how you can insure that your assets are safe for
your own future and the future of your loved ones.
What are the benefits of a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is essentially a contract signed prior to marriage
by both parties. It's important that you and your future spouse each
have your own representation from private attorneys so that neither of
you has to be concerned about any conflict of interest. There are a number
of strict procedural requirements that both you and your future spouse
must follow in the process. For example, both you and your fiancé
/ fiancée must completely disclose both of your assets and your
debts. Also, the agreement must be reached a certain length of time before
the wedding in order to eliminate the chance of coercion or undue pressure.
