Prenuptial & Post-Marital Agreement Lawyers in Carlsbad

Protect Your Property & Assets with a Marital Agreement

It is a misconception that only people with a significant amount of financial or physical assets can benefit from a prenuptial agreement. In reality, couples of all financial backgrounds should understand the value of such an agreement. Whether used to address property division in the event of a divorce or estate planning that dictates what a child is entitled to, prenuptial and post-marital agreements outline requirements for the future to be upheld in a court of law. At Beringer Law Firm, our experienced Carlsbad prenuptial and post-marital agreement attorneys can counsel our clients on their options.

Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

According to California’s Uniform Premarital Agreement Act, a prenuptial agreement signed by both parties becomes effective once the couple gets married.

With a prenuptial agreement, a couple can specify:

  • A waiver of spousal support
  • Separate property
  • Community property
  • Inheritance rights
  • Provisions in a will or trust

A prenuptial agreement is unable to dictate child support, child custody, and child visitation should the marriage end in divorce. There are additional limitations as noted by law. A Carlsbad prenuptial agreement lawyer can help navigate the complexities of these laws and ensure your agreement contains relevant provisions.

What Is the Difference between a Prenuptial & Post-Marital Agreement?

As noted by the name, a prenuptial agreement is one that occurs before a couple has entered into marriage with one another. By making decisions about assets and property division before marriage, a couple understands what to expect from a divorce or untimely death from the beginning. In contrast, a post-marital agreement is written after marriage. Since some kinds of property become community property once a couple is married, it is imperative to work with a lawyer that understands how to fairly divide these assets.
