The Importance of Prenuptial Agreements
Many couples who enter into a prenuptial agreement are primarily concerned with protecting their assets in the event of a divorce. However, it is equally important to consider the implications of a prenuptial agreement in the unfortunate event of a spouse’s passing. Prenuptial agreements can play a significant role in estate distribution and ensuring that your wishes are fulfilled.
Prenuptial Agreements vs. Wills: Resolving Conflicts
In some cases, the terms of a prenuptial agreement may conflict with the terms of a spouse’s last will and testament. When this happens, a probate court may choose to uphold the prenuptial agreement, especially if it has been fairly negotiated between the spouses. However, if the beneficiaries can prove that the prenuptial agreement is unfair, created under duress, or encouraged divorce, the court may reconsider its decision.
Using Prenuptial Agreements to Distribute the Estate
In situations where a spouse dies without a will or if the will is later found to be invalid, a prenuptial agreement can be used to distribute the estate. If the agreement explicitly deals with the deceased’s property, the court may rely on it to divide the assets and property according to the terms outlined in the agreement.
If you are considering a prenuptial agreement in Los Angeles, it is essential to seek the guidance of an experienced family law attorney. Moore Family Law can answer all your questions regarding prenuptial agreements and assist you in preparing a legally robust agreement.
