Couples in today’s day and age understand that drafting a prenuptial agreement, for many reasons, is the most practical thing they can do to preserve and protect their assets from the pitfalls of a divorce. That said, if you drafted a prenuptial agreement say, several years ago, you may now be looking to modify that agreement to better suit your current situation. Fortunately, with our experienced Los Angeles prenuptial agreement attorneys in your corner, you can relatively easily do so. Read on and reach out to our firm to learn more about modifying prenuptial agreements and how we can help.

What is a prenuptial agreement and how can I modify one in California?

As previously mentioned, a prenuptial agreement is a document that is primarily drafted before marriage to protect each spouse’s interest in certain assets, should they ever decide to get divorced down the road. That said, prenuptial agreements can do more than protect assets from a divorce; in fact, they can serve several functions. Prenuptial agreements can also be used to protect businesses, predetermine alimony agreements, and more. That said, it is worth noting that prenuptial agreements cannot predetermine child custody arrangements.

That said, let’s say you created your prenuptial agreement several years ago and your financial situation has changed. Perhaps you own a business and your business has grown substantially. Regardless, if you would like to modify your alimony agreement, you’d be best served by hiring a competent Los Angeles divorce attorney who can fill out the paperwork and modify your agreement to best fit your current situation. You should note that in certain circumstances, such as when one spouse believes the other has violated the terms of their prenuptial agreement, it’s paramount to hire competent legal representation who can help ensure your rights are protected. These agreements are legally enforceable, and violating them can have significant consequences.
