Marital Agreement Representation in Oceanside – Lawyer Joseph Carnohan

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements are designed to provide financial protection and security for the requesting party should you ultimately divorce.

The clauses set forth in these Marital Agreements vary significantly based upon the assets and debts held by each couple. A comprehensive prenuptial or postnuptial agreement typically makes provisions for the following:

Although Premarital or Postmarital Agreements may be used to address financial interests, the division of both real and personal property and debts, California law expressly forbids the use of these agreements to set forth either the amount of child support to be paid to the primary physical custodian or the issue of child custody.

In order to be enforceable, both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements must be entered into in compliance with state law. Both parties must comply with provisions requiring a comprehensive disclosure of debts. Failing to disclose financial information is sufficient to void a marital agreement.

Additionally, the party who is to be bound to the terms of the agreement must seek independent counsel to review the agreement, fully explain how it will impact them, and ensure that it is not wholly one-sided. Failure to do so may result in the Marital Agreement being deemed unenforceable due to potential claims of duress.

A skilled and highly respected attorney, Mr. Carnohan possess the experience necessary to provide the sound legal advice that is needed prior to entering into an agreement that can have long-term implications.
