Premarital Agreements

Obtain Peace of Mind With a Premarital Agreement

Premarital agreements offer both parties in a marriage an opportunity to protect their interests if the marriage terminates in divorce. Many in our society view these documents as unromantic, or believe they are a reliable indicator that a marriage will end in divorce. However, these notions are often false. At Daprile-Bell Family Law Offices, we believe in the myriad legal benefits couples experience through establishing a premarital agreement.

Our dedicated California attorneys possess an intimate knowledge of establishing these legally binding agreements for clients throughout San Jose, Santa Clara, San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties. We have the experience clients seek through all levels of family law matters.

Premarital Agreements Offer Benefits to Both Parties

Premarital agreements have the potential to remove much of the emotional distress and financial hardship families experience during divorce. By establishing parameters for some of the following factors, they help eliminate the guesswork from the process:

  • Set up unique financial agreements in the interests of both parties
  • Determine custody and support rights for any current or future children
  • Protect each individual’s current assets and property in the event of divorce
  • Form the basis of an executable estate plan

Despite the numerous benefits of a prenuptial agreement, it is wise to protect your interests by consulting with a professional lawyer before entering into one. Our attorneys have over 60 years of combined experience advising clients on premarital agreements and ensuring they offer adequate protection in your best interests. Additionally, if a prenuptial agreement is not completed correctly, it may not hold up in a court of law.
