Prenuptial or Premarital Agreements


You are planning to get married but have separate property assets to protect or want to limit the amount of spousal support or alimony to be paid to your spouse in the event of a Orange County California divorce.  Well, a prenuptial agreement may be the answer.  Here a few tips to keep in mind when deciding whether a prenuptial agreement is right for you.

  1.  A prenuptial agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
  2. A prenuptial agreement becomes enforceable on marriage and thereafter may be amended or revoked only by a written agreement signed by the parties.
  3. It must be entered into voluntarily.
  4. Both parties must be represented by counsel.
  5. The other party had an opportunity to review the document for at least 7 calendar days before it was signed.
  6. If unrepresented by a lawyer, the party must have been fully informed in writing in a language in which that party was proficient, of the terms and basic effects of the agreement and made written acknowledgment of the receipt of this information.
  7. There can be no duress, fraud of undue influence.
