Prenuptial Agreements

San Diego Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

A prenuptial agreement sometimes referred to as a premarital agreement, is an agreement between two parties to be married to one another as to the parties’ rights and obligations in any of the property that either of the parties may acquire either jointly or separately before or during the marriage. Specifically, the prenuptial agreements allow the future spouses to agree on what will happen to that property in the event of separation or divorce, or in the case of death of one of the spouses. This property can include real estate, personal property such as vehicles and jewelry, a spouse’s incomes and earnings, retirement benefits and pension plans, and even future inheritances. A San Diego Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer can offer prenuptial agreement services through the process of drafting, negotiating and executing prenuptial agreements.  We also help clients through the process of understanding, enforcing, or contesting a prenuptial agreement already in place.

When will California Courts Refuse to Enforce Prenuptial Agreements?

As noted, California courts will refuse to enforce the terms of a prenuptial agreement in a number of scenarios. A common reason for a court’s rejection of a prenuptial agreement is that it doesn’t comply with the formal requirements for such an agreement under California, or that it contains provisions which are invalid under California law, e.g. a provision that violates California public policy. California law also requires that, for certain provisions of a prenuptial agreement, one or more of the parties to the agreement must have been represented by independent counsel in making the agreement, meaning that both spouses cannot have been represented by the same attorney in negotiating and drafting the prenuptial agreement. A California court may also refuse to enforce a provision of a prenuptial agreement where it determines that the provision is unconscionable, and the courts have latitude in determining what is and what is not unconscionable.
