Marital Agreement Lawyers in Long Beach
Draft a Premarital or Postnuptial Agreement
At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we have an unwavering passion for helping couples resolve their disputes. This often involves meeting with couples during a divorce mediation session to help them reach an agreement about the various terms of their divorce. However, we also like helping people prevent marital disputes – even before they are married.
By drafting a marital agreement, you and your spouse can prepare for the future and help prevent the risk of contentious disputes in the event of divorce or death. Both prenuptial agreements – which are made prior to marriage – and postnuptial agreements, which are created during marriage, are great ways to prevent conflict between spouses.
What is Included in a Marital Agreement?
Before or during your marriage, you and your spouse can make legally binding decisions to protect yourself and each other. Creating a premarital or postmarital agreement ensures that your property will be distributed correctly in the event that the marriage ends.
The issues addressed in a marital agreement can include:
- Terms for spousal support in the event of a divorce
- Rights and obligations to separate and community property
- Limitations on separate property
- Life insurance beneficiaries
- Debts incurred during the marriage
- Assets reserved for children from another relationship
- Property distribution after death or divorce
In order for the agreement to be valid and legally binding, it must be completed according to specific guidelines outlined in California law.
To be legally enforceable, the marital contract must be:
- In writing
- Signed by each spouse
- Executed voluntarily
- Fair for both parties
- Free of any conditions regarding child support
- Absent of any illegal provisions
