Pasadena Pre-nuptial Agreement & Post-marital Agreement Attorneys

Safeguarding Your Future with a Premarital Agreement in Pasadena

It is a common misconception that by preparing pre or post nuptial agreements, a couple is deciding that their marriage will someday end in divorce. Few of us, however, take out a life insurance policy because we plan to die at an early age. Both are just good planning.

When we talk about a pre-marital agreement, it is simply working out with open eyes, what agreements you would like to have going into a marriage. A post-nuptial agreement is the same idea, just done after the marriage has begun.

Contact the professionals at the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard to schedule a consultation with a Pasadena postnuptial agreement attorney.

What Is Required for a CA Pre or Post-marital Agreement?

In order to be legally binding, these agreements must meet specific requirements. This is one of the many areas where a knowledgeable Pasadena family law attorney may be of service to you. Need a lawyer for your prenuptial agreement in Pasadena? Contact the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard for help.

Both types of agreements can address important issues to couples, such as:

  • What rights and obligations each spouse has regarding property obtained prior to the start of their marriage
  • The rights and obligations they have towards property acquired after the marriage has begun
  • How property issues will be resolved if there is a separation, dissolution of marriage (divorce) or upon death
  • How death benefits from a life insurance policy will be distributed
  • The creating of a will, trust or any other arrangement to carry out what you have planned

Ensuring Your Postnuptial Agreement is Enforceable

Per the Family Code, certain legal requirements must be fulfilled in a pre-nuptial agreement in order for it to be legally enforceable. Included in those requirements are the need for independent counsel (a lawyer) or that one has expressly waived that right in writing. At the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard we have 50 collective years of experience with successful practice in family law. We take pride in understanding the laws on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and ensuring that these are followed in drafting and filing such documents.

If child support and spousal support issues are of interest to you, it is important that you know what the laws state on these matters and marital agreements. In your agreements you and your spouse can create any sort of decisions that you feel are important. They must, however, adhere to the law and the court can set them aside if they were done in an improper manner. Done correctly, they can set a positive course for your marriage.
