Beverly Hills Marital Agreement Attorney
Family Lawyer for Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Individuals who bring significant assets into a marriage are wise to protect those assets through a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. The goal of such an agreement is to define in advance what each party's rights and obligations are with respect to the split of premarital property and, in some cases, the payment of spousal maintenance in the event of a dissolution of marriage. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are complex documents. There actually are different levels of protection that legal professionals can build into these contracts. More loosely structured agreements are ineffective if they are challenged later on, which leaves the spouse who comes out on the short end of an agreement understandably questioning why a lawyer was paid to create the agreement in the first place.
Do not allow your assets or financial security to be threatened. Call a Beverly Hills prenuptial agreement attorney at (310) 935-0711 for a completely clear, secure marital agreement.

Call (310) 935-0711 for Prenuptial Agreement Counsel Today
The firm's Beverly Hills family law attorney insists on representing only one individual when drawing up a prenuptial agreement. Your partner needs to have legal representation as well. This limits the opportunities for either spouse to challenge the agreement by claiming he or she was deprived of the ability to have counsel or didn't understand the documents being signed. In addition to prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements, the attorney also represents individuals in all matters relating to domestic partnerships, alimony, and cohabitation agreements.
