Santa Barbara Attorney Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement made between two individuals in anticipation of, and before, marriage. It can determine what will happen with your finances during marriage and after divorce. In order for a prenuptial agreement to be valid, each party must give complete and accurate final disclosures.

Additionally, each party must have at least 7 days between first receiving the prenuptial agreement and signing it (this is a cooling off or review period, to ensure the parties have adequate time to review and ensure you are not signing your prenuptial agreement the first time you see it on the morning of your marriage).

There are certain subjects that cannot be included in a prenuptial agreement. Thus, review with an attorney is recommended in the drafting process.

Additionally, if you are already married you can enter into a post-nuptial agreement. A post-nuptial agreement is made during the marriage. You can determine how you want your property divided, and support payments handled, in case you get divorced. Again, consultation with a lawyer is recommended.
