Asking for a prenuptial agreement

The days and months leading up to your wedding in Los Angeles are filled with excitement and optimism. It is difficult during this time to find the desire to take a step back and think about your long-term future (especially if those thoughts involve the possibility of your marriage not lasting). However, several of those that we here at the Thomas Law Offices have worked with in the past have expressed regret for not considering those things before they married. Doing so need not be seen as you doubting that your marriage will last; rather, it can help to verify that neither you or your spouse ae going into it with ulterior motives. 

Data compiled by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers shows that 62 percent of its membership has reported a marked increase in the number of clients asking for assistance with prenuptial agreements (particularly amongst Millennials). A prenuptial agreement may seem unromantic, but it offers certainty that no one involved in a marriage is looking to profit from it. Plus, if you have children from a previous marriage you want to ensure are protected financially or business assets and liabilities that you do not want your spouse to become burdened with, a prenuptial agreement makes a lot of sense.

So how can you ask your fiancee for one without upsetting him or her? Here are some suggestions: 

  • Ask him or her about his or her thoughts on the matter
  • Be transparent about your reasons for considering such an agreement
  • Avoid making any demands
  • Do not get emotional or defensive

If your initial attempts do not go well, you can leave the issue for later. Postnuptial agreements also offer similar protections. More information on the benefits of prenuptial agreements can be found here on our site.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
