Redondo Beach Prenuptial Agreement Attorney
South Bay Prenuptial Attorney
Financial problems are one of the leading causes of divorce. Whether you make more money than your fiancé, or if you are concerned that you may accumulate debt as a couple and do not want that to drain the assets you have accumulated, there are legal solutions that can protect your separate property before you get married.
Creating a prenuptial agreement can help alleviate some of the financial stress that arises during a marriage, and it can help protect your property if you do get divorced. In addition, signing a prenuptial agreement can help solidify a relationship, ensuring neither party is only getting married for the other person’s wealth.
When you contact my Southern California firm, Law Offices of Laura L. Westray, I can help you draft a prenuptial agreement that protects your rights and investments in the relationship. I have more than 30 years of experience helping doctors, lawyers, actors, high profile individuals and other business people protect their best interests in family law matters. I represent clients in Redondo Beach and throughout the Los Angeles and South Bay area.
Understanding and Avoiding Community Property Laws
When you are married, everything acquired during the marriage is considered marital property. In the event of divorce, this means everything should be divided equally between the two parties. A well-written prenuptial agreement can help avoid some community property laws. A family business, the house, pensions and debt can all be kept separate if it is addressed in a prenuptial agreement.
