Prenuptial (Premarital) And Postnuptial Agreements

We create and review contracts for your marriage.

A prenuptial agreement is a contract signed before marriage, while a postnuptial can be signed even if you are already married. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements give you the opportunity to prepare a marital contract that suits what you desire and how you wish to maintain your martial estate with your spouse. While in modern culture, marriage is often considered merely an emotional situation based on love and affection, the legal contract it creates and how that contract affects your individual rights cannot be ignored. These agreements provide you with some control over this impact by addressing things such as:

  • Division of joint assets
  • Protection of business assets
  • Safeguarding of an estate and children from prior relationships
  • Division of retirement savings

For example, perhaps you are getting married at a more mature age. You already own a business and have significant personal assets. You need to protect those assets so that your estate is transferred to your adult children, and to ensure that a divorce does not have a financial impact on your company. You can accomplish both with a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

The Benefits

When you work with us at Genesis Family Law, to create the agreement, you gain several benefits. These include:

  • Eliminating uncertainties about the future and protecting families members that will become part of a blended family;

  • Discussing terms long before the emotions and stress of divorce begin to take a toll.

  • Protecting business partners who will want to be able to make business decisions without having to worry about a 3rd party spouse who was uninvolved with the business prior to the marriage;

  • Working with a California State Bar Board Certified Family Law Specialist and a firm with over 40 years of combined experience can help come up with creative ways to terminate or end a long term spousal support order that could otherwise last indefinitely.

  • At the end of the day, settling your desires and rights before a divorce can significantly ease the process in case of separation.

At the end of the day, addressing your desires and your rights before a marriage can streamline the process significantly if you ever split up.
