- the Winning Argument for Your Case
A prenuptial agreement (also known as a premarital agreement) is entered into prior to the date of marriage.
A postnuptial agreement (also known as a post marital agreement) is entered into after the date of marriage.
The purposes is to allow the parties to decide for themselves, how support and/or property issues are to be decided in the event of separation, rather than resorting to default California Law.
When entered into willfully, and with full knowledge and understanding, the concept makes sense, as the default California law is a "one size fits all" solution, which may not be fair or suitable to parties who do not fit the stereotype situation when they get married.
However, where one party was coerced, mislead, defrauded, and/or did not receive full disclosure, the results are unfair. If you were that party, you need to consult with divorce lawyer immediately, as statutes of limitations my apply to preclude you from brining your claim at a later date.
