Considering A Pre- Or Postnuptial Agreement?

Prenuptial agreements can be written to accomplish many things. A prenuptial agreement can identify a person’s separate property so that those assets do not become transformed into community property. An agreement can protect the inheritances of children from previous marriages. It can provide peace of mind by assuring that your assets will be protected in the event of divorce. The Law Offices of David M. Lederman is a family law firm with extensive experience in matters involving prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements. Mr. Lederman has practiced in this field for more than 20 years.

What You Need to Know About California Parentage Law

In the eyes of the law, parentage is determined in California when a parent files a Petition to Establish a Parental Relationship. If there is a question about who the father of a child is, then both parents must provide blood for a paternity test. Establishing parentage in this manner is widely accepted, and it is unlikely that courts will go against a DNA test finding. The legal consequences of a determination that someone is the father of a child include the responsibility to pay child support as well as the right to child custody and visitation. If you receive an order to provide a DNA test or are attempting to compel a former partner to provide blood, our experienced, compassionate lawyers can assist you.

The Importance Of A Properly-Drafted Agreement

Under California law, prenuptial agreements are valid provided that they meet the following conditions:
  • A prenuptial agreement must be entered into by a party’s free will and not under coercion.
  • The parties must have adequate time to review the agreement before the marriage.
  • All separate property must be disclosed.
Failure to meet these and other requirements can result in a weak agreement that could be held invalid in court. Our attorneys understand the law regarding prenuptial agreements. We will review your situation and discuss your goals. We will then draft a sound agreement designed to protect your rights and your assets.

Act Sooner Rather Than Later

The months and weeks leading up to a marriage can be very busy. It can be all too easy to postpone the task of concluding a premarital agreement. If you and your future spouse have talked about the need for such an agreement, you should not delay until it is too late. The Law Offices of David M.
