Prenuptial Agreements in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County

Are you planning to tie the knot? Congratulations! As you embark on this exciting journey, it is important to consider discussing a Prenuptial Agreement with your partner.

What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement, often referred to as a “prenup” or “premarital agreement,” is a legal binding document that you and your fiancĂ© entered before you get married or enter a registered domestic partnership. A prenup outlines the rights and responsibilities of each of you in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. For a 2nd marriage this can be particularly important if you want to designate what happens to your property after your death.  A premarital agreement allows you to establish your own rules regarding property division, spousal support, and other financial matters. While no one enters a marriage expecting it to end, having a clear and enforceable prenuptial agreement can offer peace of mind and financial security for both parties.

Why should you consider a prenuptial agreement?

While it may not be the most romantic topic, having a prenuptial agreement offers several benefits, including:

  1. Protection of individual assets: A prenuptial agreement can safeguard assets that you bring into the marriage, such as businesses, real estate, investments, or personal savings. It ensures that these assets remain separate property and not subject to division in the event of a divorce.
  2. Clarification of financial responsibilities: Prenups can help couples clarify their financial responsibilities during the marriage, including the payment of debts, joint bank accounts, and maintaining financial independence.
  3. Minimization of conflict: By addressing potential financial disagreements in advance, a prenuptial agreement can minimize conflicts and reduce the stress associated with property division and financial disputes in the event of a divorce.
  4. Protection of family interests: If you have children from a previous relationship or have family heirlooms, a prenuptial agreement can ensure that these assets are protected and passed down to your children or other designated beneficiaries.
  5. Financial transparency: Creating a prenuptial agreement requires full disclosure of both parties’ finances, promoting transparency and trust in the relationship.

After being filed with divorce papers, I called Kathleen and left her a message regarding my circumstance. She promptly returned my call and was extremely helpful and concerned regarding my case. It was a breath of fresh air that someone finally cared and understood. I ended up meeting with her later that day and when I walked in still extremely emotional she looked at me and I felt like she understood. I explained my situation and told her that I was most concerned for my two children. She also understood that from a personal level also. Kate always tried to make sure that I understood that it really was the communication between my ex and I that would most likely solve this. She also completely understood and reminded me that all this anger from him was feelings of hurt. Kate was there for me emotionally and answered all my questions regarding the case at anytime. She was even willing to talk to me on weekends and from home. Kate is professional, caring, and I will always be thankful to her for helping me in one of the worst times is my life.
