Trusted California Attorney Assists with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Experienced lawyer drafts and enforces marital agreements in the Woodland Hills area

Many couples choose to create prenuptial (also known as premarital) agreements before they wed. Learn more about the benefits of prenuptial agreements here. Less common but just as effective are postnuptial agreements drafted after marriage. Executing a prenuptial agreement allows you and your fiancée to decide how you wish your assets and debts to be divided in the event of a divorce or legal separation. Parties can also address spousal support in a premarital agreement.  Under the law no child support or child custody issues may be addressed in a premarital agreement. Galen Gentry works with couples in the Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California to create fair and enforceable legal agreements that protect their interests.

Thorough Los Angeles Attorney advises clients on protecting their assets

In most situations one party wishes to present a prenuptial agreement to the other party. The party who desires the agreement hires a lawyer to draft it. The party to whom it’s presented should seek their own counsel to review the proposed agreement.

  • A prenuptial agreement typically lists all of the property each person owns (as well as any debts) and specifies what each person’s property rights will be after the marriage
  • Often the agreement states that the separate property of each party will remain separate property and the assets obtained during marriage will not be community property
  • The agreement may specify how finances and assets will be handled during the marriage
  • The agreement may specify spousal support terms
  • The agreement may address business ownership issues
  • The agreement may specify what happens with disability and other insurance coverage
