Attacking Or Defending A Prenuptial Agreement Backed by 100+ Years' Experience

Attacking Or Defending A Prenuptial Agreement

Addressing All Concerns Involving Enforceability Of Marital Agreements

Many married couples in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Orange County and throughout Southern California have prenuptial agreements in place, which may govern the distribution of assets upon divorce or the death of one spouse. However, changes in California law within the past 10 years have led to increased scrutiny of such agreements — as well as many successful challenges to their legality and enforceability.

At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, our attorneys are versed in current law, including the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act and relevant California statutes and case law. A high percentage of our clients have substantial wealth and needs related to complex property division, often including the review and analysis of a prenup or other marital agreement.

Protecting Our Clients' Interests

We assist clients with the drafting of prenuptial agreements and provide comprehensive divorce representation for those with agreements that must be evaluated and considered. In both situations, we are committed to fully understanding our clients' goals and protecting their interests.

Attacking a prenuptial agreement may be a viable strategy under a range of circumstances. Grounds may include the presence of provisions that do not comply with California law, the failure of either party to have legal counsel and an opportunity to review before signing, or any element of coercion or duress.

As proven marital contract analysts and litigators, our lawyers are equally adept at defending a prenuptial agreement against challenge on any of those grounds.
