► Overview of Premarital Agreements / Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is an agreement that governs the rights and obligations of the spouses during the marriage and in the event of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements are common in “community property” states such as California, which presumes that marriage is a financial partnership between the parties, requiring them to consider all of their income as “pooled” community income and all of their debts as joint debts.
A prenuptial agreement allows the parties to agree to terms governing their financial rights, to ensure that their property and assets are handled according to agreement that is acceptable to both parties rather than the law (which can favor one party instead of another). Prenuptial agreements can involve waivers or reductions of spousal support, in the event a divorce occurs, or limit the characterization of certain types of property as community property.
► Why are Prenuptial Agreements Used?
Prenuptial agreements are often used by executives, business owners, partners, directors, officers, athletes, and entertainers because of the lucrative nature of their careers, and the fact that many years often goes into building the person’s career that long pre-existed the marriage. Because community property laws require “Tracing” of financial assets in the event of dissolution, which can be extremely expensive and require the services of a forensic accountant, many soon-to-be newlyweds prepare a prenuptial agreement to avoid expensive and time-consuming disputes.
► How Long Does it Take to Prepare a Prenuptial Agreement?
Generally, once it is known what issues the parties wish to take care of in the prenuptial agreement, the process can be completed in as little as 1- 2 business days or little longer where the issues are more complex.
Usually the parties are given time to obtain independent counsel, meaning, attorneys who can advise them of their rights, and this will depend on the complexity of the agreement.
► What Topics can be Covered in a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement can cover a wide array of topics, including but not limited to:
- Who owns/keeps the family home
- How should the family home be valuated
- Spousal support
- Ownership of pre-existing assets
- Ownership and division of businesses, business ventures, and business enterprises
