The Benefits of Premarital Planning

Prenuptial agreements may have originally been used by the very wealthy, but this is no longer the case. Today, premarital agreements are increasingly being used by people of much more modest means.

Prenuptial agreements are often drafted:

  • By those with prior marriages and children from previous relationships
  • By the recipients of large inheritances or trust funds
  • For business-related reasons

Crafting a Legal Premarital Agreement

Premarital agreements generally address property rights, including jointly owned property and separate property. The agreement should contain details about how the property will be divided in the event of divorce.

In most cases, courts will uphold agreements as long as the terms are not in violation of the law or public policy. An experienced premarital agreement attorney in San Diego can help ensure that your agreement meets all legal requirements.

For a prenuptial agreement to be valid:

  • It must be in writing
  • It must be signed by both parties voluntarily
  • Both spouses must have full knowledge and understanding of the terms

In addition, each spouse must be represented by his or her own attorney. This is important because having your own lawyer gives you someone to look out for your interests and advocate on your behalf. Hire an attorney with extensive knowledge of divorce and family law to explain the terms and obligations of the agreement so that you understand what you are signing.

Please contact Embry Family Law P.C. at (619) 485-6476 for help crafting or reviewing a prenuptial agreement in San Diego.
