If you are facing or considering divorce and have a prenuptial agreement in place, it is critical to work with an experienced lawyer who will thoroughly analyze that agreement. Premarital agreements vary widely in their language and enforceability, and how yours was drafted or executed matters.
At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, an accomplished team of attorneys drafts a wide range of premarital and postnuptial agreements for our diverse clientele. Our Newport Beach family lawyers have also successfully contested and defended premarital agreements in a range of divorce proceedings. Complex financial analysis and aggressive case building are strengths for our firm.
Our Orange County-based attorneys' in-depth knowledge of the California Premarital Agreement Act (CPMA), including time stipulations and other key points of attack, can be a tremendous asset for you.
Finally, it may be viable to contest the fundamental fairness of the terms of the prenuptial agreement you entered. A common scenario in these cases is the need to show that one spouse did not know what was being signed away, and therefore the agreement must be reconsidered or declared void.
We seek fair, efficient settlements of financial disputes through direct negotiation or mediation whenever possible. However, should your matter ultimately call for a trial lawyer armed with a compelling, well-researched case, you will have that covered as well.
To discuss any prenuptial agreement or other premarital contract and its significance as you proceed through a California divorce, schedule a consultation by calling (949) 565-4158 today.
