San Jose Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

San Jose Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

Lawyers in Santa Clara County and the Bay Area for Premarital Agreements

A couple planning to get married may spend several months or more planning their perfect wedding, with each detail carefully considered and arranged. It is also important for the couple to look beyond the wedding day and offer similar consideration to preparing for the marriage itself. At the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich, we are proud to help prospective spouses plan ahead by developing comprehensive prenuptial agreements that provide long-term security and peace of mind to both parties.

California Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers

California adopted the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act in 1986 (UPAA). Under the terms of UPAA, future spouses can negotiate prenuptial agreements to address a wide range of financial and property issues. While some believe that signing a prenuptial agreement is an indication that you do not trust your partner, many others find that the process of creating the agreement teaches them a great deal about how to discuss money and other difficult topics.

Many prenuptial agreements are geared toward preparing for the possibility of a future divorce. The experienced attorneys at our law firm are equipped to help you and your spouse develop an agreement that:

  • Identifies specific assets or debts as community or separate property, including homes, business interests, and previously acquired investments;
  • Makes provisions for spousal support;
  • Protects inheritance rights for children from a previous relationship;
  • Specifies expectations for life insurance policies, including beneficiary information; and
  • Addresses any other concern the couple may have.

A prenuptial agreement cannot waive or compromise the rights of a child under any circumstances.

Trusted Legal Counsel for Marital Agreements in Oakland and Fremont

In order for a prenuptial agreement to be enforceable in the future, it needs to be reasonably fair to both parties. Both parties must also be given sufficient time to review the document with an attorney before it is signed. If any of the terms of the agreement are found to be unconscionable, or a spouse was intentionally deceptive in the creation of the agreement, the affected provisions may be set aside by the court.

At the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich, our team recognizes the value of a strong, reasonable prenuptial agreement. That is why we are committed to helping couples negotiate the terms of an agreement that can provide financial security and peace of mind.
