If you are considering a prenuptial agreement, also known as a premarital agreement, it is important that you contact an experienced San Diego Family law attorney as soon as possible. The law requires that the agreement be presented for the parties' review within a "reasonable" period of time before the wedding. Practically speaking that is usually no less than 10 days prior to the wedding.
At Primus Family Law in San Diego, our attorneys have nearly two decades of experience crafting customized prenuptial agreements. We begin the process by getting to know your situation. What assets do you have that need to be protected? Do you have children from another marriage? What are your goals? Only after asking these questions can we create a document that will truly meet your needs.
Depending on your needs, your prenuptial agreement may be a single page or it could be much more complex if it requires providing for different outcomes to accommodate a wide range of scenarios.
Various factors can weaken a prenuptial agreement or cause it to be disregarded entirely — for example, if the spouse agreeing to it does not have the opportunity to have it reviewed by his or her own lawyer or if all assets and debts are not disclosed. The experience offered by our San Diego family law attorneys means that we know how to create solid prenuptial agreements that will withstand future legal challenges.
