There might be different reasons why you and your spouse did not decide to sign a prenuptial agreement. However, this does not mean that signing such a contract is out of the question once you are married. Many spouses decide to sign a postnuptial agreement to protect their interests in the event of a divorce.
If you are facing divorce and have a postnuptial agreement in place, you want an experienced postnuptial agreement lawyer in Los Angeles representing you.
Is Your Agreement Enforceable?
Postnuptial agreements can have many terms and should be tailored to your specific marriage and financial situation. Terms can include alimony awards or limitations, property division guidelines, and more. However, there are requirements for a postnuptial agreement to be enforceable in California, and our attorneys can review your contract and identify any issues with enforceability.
If certain terms of your postnuptial agreement favor your spouse, you might want to argue against its enforceability. These agreements, just like California prenuptial agreements, might be unenforceable if any of the following are true:
- One spouse was coerced into signing the agreement or induced by fraud
- The agreement heavily and unfairly favors one spouse and/or has unconscionable terms
- One spouse did not provide full disclosure about their finances and tried to conceal assets
If you believe your postnuptial agreement might be unenforceable, our attorneys can argue for the court to invalidate certain terms or the entire agreement. The court will then decide how your financial issues will be resolved outside of the contract.
