Prenuptial Agreements

 

Prenuptial agreements are legal documents that are made in contemplation of marriage and that become effective upon marriage. Prenuptial Agreements may outline what property belongs to each individual spouse before and during marriage, as well as how all property should be divided in the event of a future divorce.  Prenuptial agreements establish, in advance of marriage, how property will be treated or divided at the time of a divorce or death.

 

There are many different types of prenups.  Some do away with community property entirely and replace it with another plan.  Prenuptial agreements allow spouses to "opt out" of most or all community property rights prescribed under the law.  Other agreements confirm what the parties have coming into the marriage and allow for sharing of income earned during marriage.   

 

A prenuptial agreement can provide a financial plan for the marriage and help avoid financial disputes and struggles which are often cited as the number one reason couples split.

Family Law

 

My goal is to help you understand your options and every detail of your legal process from start to finish so that you can make informed decisions to your benefit. Speak with me today at no cost to you in order to discuss your case and learn more about how I can help you obtain a quick and simple solution to your case.

Divorce

 

Do you want to dissolve your marriage in California? Are you considering legal separation?  An experienced divorce lawyer can help you understand your options and make the best possible decision for your situation. I will make your interests my own and work with you personally toward a satisfactory result.

 

Child Custody

From start to finish, my focus is on the best interests of the children in your case. The court makes child custody decisions based on your children's best interests, which is why you need a child custody and divorce lawyer who can present a strong case to benefit you and your children in the areas of child custody and visitation. 

 

 

Support & Property Division

If you and your spouse are looking to end your marriage or live separately, you will need to address the division of property including assets and debts.  In California, any property obtained by either party during marriage is considered community property and subject to division during a divorce.  Property includes retirement accounts which are often handled by preparation of a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)  These court orders are issued along with your divorce judgment and outline exactly how your retirement benefits are to be distributed to each party.
