Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements in Montebello

Family Law Attorney serving East Los Angeles, Monterey Park, South San Gabriel and Montebello

Once considered only necessary for the wealthy, pre and post-nuptial agreements are more and more considered sound practice; regardless of wealth or the lack of it. There are many good, practical reasons to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement before you are married; or, a post-nuptial agreement if you are already married. Marriage itself is a contractual agreement between two people. The basic marriage contract is very general; the details of which are rarely worked out until such time when the marriage ends and the parties involved may have hostile feelings towards one another. Clarifying and agreeing upon issues such as property division, spousal support and financial responsibilities of child rearing at the onset of a marriage can actually strengthen the bond or reveal areas of disagreement that can be addressed and resolved without hostility.

Whether it is you requesting a prenuptial agreement or you are in the position of having an agreement presented to you, you need a Montebello divorce lawyer working for you and protecting your best interests.

Prenuptial Agreements and Post Nuptial Agreements in Montebello

There are many reasons why it makes sense to work out certain issues prior to or early in a marriage. The most obvious is for the wealthy to ensure the person they are marrying is not just motivated by that wealth. There are, however, other reasons. If one partner enters a marriage with significant debt, a pre-nuptial agreement can ensure that debt does not become a shared responsibility in the event of a later divorce. When one spouse owns a business, it is wise to work out whether or not the spouse will have ownership in that business in the event of a divorce later on. If either partner was married previously, if there are children from a previous marriage or joint property from a former marriage, there can be quite some complexity in working things out. Custody of a pet can even be part of a pre-nuptial agreement. No matter what your circumstances are, The Law Offices of Beatriz A. Pelayo-Garcia, APC have the experience and knowledge to ensure your interests are protected for the future.
