Pre/Postnuptial Agreements in Rancho Cucamonga
Protection in Case the Worst Happens in Your Marriage
Many individuals in the current culture take advantage of the option to get a prenuptial agreement before marriage. This allows them to protect their personal assets if the marriage should end.
At one time, such an agreement was unusual, but currently, this is a common legal procedure, particularly with high net worth couples who are seeking to protect their property, bank accounts, stock accounts, and other assets. It is important to understand this legal action.
You'll Want an Attorney's Help Drafting the Agreement
These agreements must be carefully drafted specifically for the individuals involved. As many such agreements are later challenged in court, the exact wording is critical. A Rancho Cucamonga family law attorney from Chung & Ignacio, LLP has the legal skill and ability to draft an agreement that has a much higher potential of surviving a later court challenge. Even one word out of place can create serious problems if the agreement is not carefully constructed by one of our insightful attorneys.
For individuals who are seeking a postnuptial agreement, the same holds true. In some cases, these agreements are necessary when a couple is separating, and a legal document laying out the financial responsibilities of each during the separation should be created.
- This can be a complex process, particularly if the spouses are not in accord about the critical matters such as:
- Child support
- Spousal support
Getting these matters into writing and coming to a resolution as quickly as possible allows the two to move forward and make decisions about their future, whether it is to resolve the marriage or divorce. We can help with any such matter and have the skill to draft an agreement that protects our clients' interests.
Of course, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements cannot contain stipulations about unimportant things such as household duties or refraining from annoyances. These matters have deal directly with parental duties, pertinent financial matters, and other topic areas deemed significant by the court.
