What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that outlines the division of assets and debts should the couple decide to get a divorce down the road. 

Many couples enter into these agreements to protect certain assets, such as businesses or inheritances, that they want to maintain control over should the marriage end.

How Long Does a Prenup Last in California?

Prenuptial agreements take effect when a couple marries. In California, there is no expiration date for prenups, unless a sunset clause is enacted. 

A sunset clause in a prenuptial agreement in California is a provision that limits the validity of the agreement to a certain period of time. This clause can be used to limit how long the prenup stays valid, allowing both parties the option to renegotiate or end the agreement after that specified time. 

Requirements for Prenuptial Agreements

There are requirements that must be met and certain limitations on what can be included in the agreement. For example, matters pertaining to child custody or support are not permitted in a prenup. 

Additionally, state law specifically mandates when an agreement could potentially not be enforceable under certain conditions, such as if the agreement was made non-voluntarily. That’s why it’s best to always consult with a qualified Lancaster attorney who is skilled in California family law.

What is a Fair Prenup?

In order for a prenup to be fair, both parties must disclose all assets, liabilities, and debts. This could include everything from real estate investments to retirement funds; credit card debt to other financial obligations. A fair prenup is going to protect the assets of each spouse in the unfortunate event of a divorce and therefore requires full financial transparency. Before a prenuptial agreement is signed, each spouse will need to provide their most recent bank statements, pay stubs, tax returns, stock portfolio, and any other financial records.
