Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in San Diego
Prenup and Postnup Agreements
You enter into a marriage with the hopes that it will last forever. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Marriage is a contract which binds both spouses to certain terms and conditions regarding assets and debts. Negotiating a prenuptial agreement, or signing a postnuptial agreement after the fact, establishes a marital contract on your own terms. Thomas Huguenor is a San Diego family law attorney experienced in helping couples negotiate fair and valid contracts that establish property and financial issues at the start of a marriage, so that future conflicts may be avoided. Call (858) 458-9500 today for a free consultation.
Assisting Couples With Their Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreement
Creating a prenuptial agreement allows you or your spouse to protect certain assets from being subject to division should you later get a divorce. By making agreements before marriage about how property should be divided and if it will remain separate, an expensive and litigious divorce may be avoided. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements also often force a couple to discuss finances prior to marriage, helping the marriage begin on an honest and open note.
Thomas Huguenor is a board certified family law attorney who can help couples draft an agreement that is fair and will be upheld in court if necessary. Tom is knowledgeable regarding what terms can and cannot be dictated in a prenuptial agreement. Many couples do not realize that matters of child support and custody must be decided by a court, and not a private contract. Contrary to popular belief, "cheating clauses" are also not valid in a prenuptial contract. Finally, many couples do not realize that if one spouse makes considerably more money than the other, a contract cannot "unfairly" leave the non-wealthy spouse with nothing. Tom will sit down with the couple and mediate a discussion about their finances, make suggestions regarding fair agreements, and will help address any concerns either party may have. As a professional with more than 35 years of experience, Tom will make the process of negotiating a contract stress free, and as pleasant of an experience as possible.
San Diego Family Attorneys Providing Free Consultations for Your Postnuptial Agreement
Sometimes couples get married quickly, or simply do not wish to think about financial matters prior to marriage. Postnuptial agreements are equally valid, assuming that neither party is being unfairly coerced into signing an agreement. Many couples choose to sign a contract post-marriage once they realize they have concerns regarding property or business ventures. Thomas Huguenor is experienced in helping couples peacefully work out even the most complicated of financial matters. Contact our San Diego prenuptial and postnuptial agreement attorneys for your free consultation today, either online or by telephone at (858) 458-9500.
