Crafting Effective Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Marital agreements like prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are important tools for establishing expectations in a relationship. Whether you are engaged, married or thinking about divorce, marital agreements can ensure that you and your partner are on the same page about how to handle assets should you ever separate or divorce.

At Thomas Law Offices, we can help you craft agreements that work. Not all marital agreements are created equal. California has strict guidelines that must be followed for an agreement to be enforceable. We will help you take the necessary steps to ensure that your agreement works when you need it to.

Attorney Kendra Thomas is a Certified Family Law Specialist — a distinction given only to lawyers who have extensive experience and have passed a rigorous test. We have offices in Woodland Hills and Newport Beach and serve the surrounding areas.

What Goes Into A Strong Prenup Or Postnup?

A marital agreement must meet certain requirements to be considered valid:

  • It must be in writing.
  • The provisions must be reasonable.
  • It cannot address child custody.
  • Both parties must disclose all assets, liabilities and income.
  • Both parties must have an attorney.
  • It must be written with enough time for each party to read and sign it without pressure.

As your law firm, we will make sure we consider these guidelines and others when crafting your marital agreement. There is no point in creating a marital agreement that will not work when you need it to. We understand the importance of getting it right now.
