Understanding The Value Of Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

While some people might tend to see the suggestion of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement as a negative thing, having one in place can be beneficial for both spouses. These agreements allow you and your spouse to protect what is most important to you if your marriage does not work out.

Having the right lawyer can help ensure that you are able to clearly state what should happen if you and your spouse divorce. At Contreras Law Firm in San Diego, we offer skilled representation to clients with questions regarding pre- and postnuptial agreements.

The Advantages Of Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

You do not want to put yourself or your family in a position where your separate property gets liquidated or split upon a future divorce or death. We have years of experience negotiating, drafting, reviewing and litigating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We will work to ensure that you are protected under California law. Items covered by these agreements include:

  • Partnership interests
  • Business assets
  • Children from a prior marriage and potential inheritance rights
  • Real property
  • Stocks, bonds and retirement funds
  • Debt
  • Potential increase in income due to ongoing degrees
  • Spousal support/alimony

These issues are all important to consider when entering a marriage, and drafting prenuptial or postnuptial agreements can ensure that your assets are well-protected from any unfortunate future event. We can help you draft an agreement that is right for your particular situation.

If your spouse-to-be has proposed getting a prenup and you need advice about your rights, our lawyers also review prenuptial agreements. When appropriate, we will work to negotiate clearer terms that help you protect your rights. If there was anything improper about the drafting or execution of your agreement, we are fully prepared to litigate the matter in court.
