Premarital Agreement Attorneys In The Newport Beach Area
You may have once believed your prenuptial agreement protected your financial position if you ever divorced, but have serious concerns about that now that divorce is the reality. Laws covering premarital contracts and issues of enforceability, including the California Premarital Agreement Act (CPMA), are complex and always subject to interpretation by judges.
Are Defending And Enforcing Your Prenup Key Priorities In Your Divorce?
It is important to recognize that premarital agreements vary widely based on when they were drafted, the knowledge and skill levels of the attorneys who drafted them, and other factors.
Defending yours may require in-depth analysis and formation of a sound legal strategy to overcome allegations of:
- Violations of CPMA stipulations, including timing requirements such as having had the agreement in final form seven days prior to marriage.
- Your failure to properly and in good faith disclose your financial condition to your spouse at the time you entered a marital contract together.
- Improprieties in your financial dealings such as the hiding of assets or under-reporting of income.
- Coercion or duress exerted on your spouse to sign the agreement.
