Oftentimes, before couples marry, they will draft documents known as prenuptial agreements. A prenuptial agreement is a fantastic way to protect assets, should a couple ever get divorced in the future. That being said, as life goes on, situations change, and when they do, one or both spouses will wish to modify their prenuptial agreement. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Los Angeles divorce attorneys to learn more about modifying prenuptial agreements and how our firm can help you do so. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What is the point of drafting a prenuptial agreement?
There are several reasons why a couple would draft a prenuptial agreement, though the primary purpose of doing so is ensuring that their assets are protected, should they ever get divorced. Some of the assets you can protect in a prenuptial agreement include inheritances, assets acquired prior to or during a marriage, prenuptial agreements allow couples to establish future alimony terms, and more. Our firm can help you draft such an agreement if you are not yet married and wish to do so.
How do I go about modifying a prenuptial agreement?
Oftentimes, as time goes by, spouses will wish to modify their prenuptial agreement. For example, if one spouse gets a higher-paying job, the other may request a larger future alimony agreement. In other cases, one spouse believes that the other spouse violated the terms of their prenuptial agreement and requires enforcement of the prenuptial agreement. The bottom line is that whether you are looking to simply adjust the terms of your prenuptial agreement, or you believe that your spouse has violated the terms of your prenuptial agreement, you must not proceed without the assistance of a knowledgeable California divorce attorney on your side. Our firm has significant experience drafting and modifying prenuptial agreements, and we are ready to put that experience to work for you to ensure that your rights and assets are protected through every step of the process.
