Newport Beach Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers

Experienced Help Creating Marital Agreements

For any number of reasons, a couple may choose to enter into a contract prior to marriage to deal with issues that may arise at the time of divorce. We call these marriage contracts Prenuptial Agreements, Prenuptial Contracts, Premarital Agreements, or “Pre-Nups.” The content of such a contract may vary greatly depending on the needs and goals of the parties.

You can create a marital agreement after you are married as well. This is called a Postnuptial Contract or a Postnuptial Agreement. If you have a prenuptial agreement and have been married for a long time, your circumstances may have changed and the original document may no longer be viable. It's not a bad idea to update to a postnuptial agreement.

At Bremer Whyte Brown & O'Meara, our family law attorneys in Newport Beach have decades of experience creating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Call us today at (949) 229-8546.

Why Create a Marital Agreement?

Prenuptial agreements make sense in some situations and not others. Below are a few cases in which prenuptial agreements may be considered:

  • Establishing a set of rights and duties for property (can be pre-marital property or marital property) and financial obligations
  • When one or both parties own a business
  • If either party carries a significant amount of debt
  • When one or both parties own real estate
  • Have inherited or expect to inherit assets
  • The parties own more than $50,000 in assets
  • One or both parties previously married or have children from another arrangement

These agreements can be very valuable in streamlining and simplifying the issues in the event of a dissolution and allow parties to agree on their own rules to govern such issues as property division and characterization.

While the subject of a Premarital Agreement may be uncomfortable, these contracts can save one a lot of time and heartache in the event of a divorce. The law related to Premarital Contracts or Agreements is specific and complex, so it is important for both parties to have knowledgeable counsel in drafting and negotiating the contract.
