How Do Prenups Work in California?

California courts utilize The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA) when evaluating prenups, meaning that a prenuptial agreement signed by both parties automatically goes into effect once they marry.

According to the UPAA, prenups are only enforceable if:

  • Both parties completely disclose their property holdings and finances to each other prior to signing;
  • Both parties had at least seven days to evaluate the prenup before signing;
  • Each party was represented by a separate attorney when drafting and signing the prenup.

Additionally, prenuptial agreements can only contain terms for the following:

  • Whether either party should receive spousal support in the event of a divorce;
  • How to divide property during a divorce;
  • How to separate community property (like earnings) during the marriage and divorce.

Prenups cannot include terms for how to handle child custody or support, unless they agree to provide a potential child with more support than the law requires.

The terms and conditions within a prenup must be reasonable. If a prenup contains "unconscionable" terms (such as perhaps barring spousal support in a marriage where the potential payor could easily afford it and the other party is in dire need of support), a court may not decide to uphold the prenup.

Couples that want to ensure they maintain an equitable division of property throughout their marriage (and in the event of a divorce) should strongly consider signing a prenup.

At Feinberg & Waller, APC, our Calabasas prenuptial agreement attorney will work with you and your soon-to-be-spouse's attorney to establish equitable terms for your marital agreement.

How Long do Prenups Last in CA?

A prenuptial agreement generally does not expire no matter what state you draft it in. This is for the protection of both parties involved. However, those interested in creating a timetable for expiration may due so through a provision called a "sunset clause". This is essentially a provision that ceases the effectiveness of a contract when a specified date is named. Couples who engage in this are often comfortable with their marriage and do not see the benefit of having a prenup from many years ago. If your specific predicament requires this service, call our office today for more information.
