If you have personal assets to protect and are considering getting married, it pays to talk to a knowledgeable California family law attorney about the importance of a prenuptial agreement. Prenuptial agreements are binding agreements that stipulate what personal assets will not be considered marital property under California's community property laws, in the event of divorce.

What is a Post-Nuptial Agreement

A post-nuptial agreement is much the same as a prenup, except the married spouses agree during the marriage that certain property should remain as personal property, rather than community property in the event of contested divorce.

Prenup Requirements

A valid prenuptial agreement is a contract and must meet the following requirements:

  • The agreement must be in writing and executed voluntarily
  • There must be a full and fair disclosure of all assets and debts at the time of the agreement
  • Both signing parties should have their own legal representation
  • In the event alimony limitations are included in the agreement, both parties are required by law to have their own attorney
  • The agreement should be drafted several months ahead of the date of marriage
  • The agreement cannot be unconscionable, giving one party an inordinate amount of property protections, while offering few legal protections to the other party
  • Must be executed legally, in front of a notary public

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
