A Well-Prepared Future — Premarital And Postnuptial Agreements

As a family law attorney I, Ronald K. Stitch, have been drafting prenuptial, premarital and postnuptial agreements for over 35 years. I have been a Certified Family Law Specialist for over 20 years. I understand California law regarding premarital and postnuptial agreements and can customize a community property scheme to fit individual needs.

During the consultation my office will have with a prospective client regarding the drafting of a premarital/prenuptial ("prenup") agreement or postnuptial agreement, we will review the following:

  • Separate property and how to keep property separate, including the rents, issues, profits, increases, appreciation, earnings and income
  • How community property and income acquired during marriage may be allocated between spouses
  • Spousal support and the current laws regarding spousal support provisions
  • Waiver of the right to inherit under each other's respective estates
  • Retirement accounts
  • The importance of independent legal counsel for both parties
  • Applicable law and the validity of the agreement

At The Law Offices of Ronald K. Stitch, we represent clients throughout Ventura and Los Angeles counties. To schedule a free consultation with me or my associate Stephanie Rose O'Connor, please contact my firm at 805-242-9713.
