Torrance Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

Tailored Prenuptial Solutions for California Couples

Contrary to the common misunderstanding, it isn't just certain couples or those with high incomes who benefit from a full financial disclosure and arrangement before 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. Instead, it is an extra precaution, 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 - mainly if this is not your first marriage or 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 ensure that your assets are safe for your future and your loved ones.

What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement, often called a "prenup" or "premarital agreement," is a legally binding contract entered into by a couple before they marry. This agreement establishes each party's financial and property rights in the event of divorce, separation, or death. While some may view prenuptial agreements as a safeguard against potential disputes, they are, in essence, a proactive measure aimed at fostering open communication and mutual understanding between partners.

What are the Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a contract signed before marriage by both parties. You and your future spouse must have your representation from private attorneys, so neither of you has to be concerned about any conflict of interest. There are several strict procedural requirements that both you and your future spouse must follow in the process. For example, you and your fiancé/fiancée must completely disclose your assets and debts. Also, the agreement must be reached before the wedding to eliminate the chance of coercion or undue pressure.

What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Cover?

  • Property and Asset Division: Prenuptial agreements commonly address the division of property and assets acquired during the marriage. This includes real estate, investments, business interests, and personal possessions.
  • Spousal Support: The agreement may outline the terms and conditions for spousal support or alimony, specifying the payment amount and duration.
  • Debts and Liabilities: Prenuptial agreements can allocate responsibility for existing debts and establish how future debts will be managed during the marriage and in the event of divorce.
  • Estate Planning: In some cases, couples use prenuptial agreements as a tool for estate planning, ensuring that specific assets are designated for certain beneficiaries in the event of death.
  • Financial Responsibilities: The agreement may detail each spouse's financial responsibilities during the marriage, such as managing joint accounts, savings, and investments.
