Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Bellevue Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers

Helping Seattle Residents with Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement can be used to protect the assets of a person entering into marriage, by identifying separate property as distinct from community property.

Should the marriage end in divorce, the prenuptial agreement can be used to fashion a workable and mutually acceptable property settlement without resort to costly property division litigation. A prenuptial agreement can also be used to ensure that children from a previous marriage inherit a parent’s assets in accordance with the parent’s wishes. Our Bellevue family law attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience helping clients draft detailed prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We look forward to helping you address your concerns.

Prenuptial Agreements and the Law

Washington State law has recognized prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. The future spouse must have adequate time before the marriage to review a proposed prenuptial agreement. The document must clearly identify the separate assets. The agreement cannot be the result of coercion, force, or misrepresentation. In addition, the parties to the agreement must live by the terms of the agreement throughout the marriage.

If a separate property agreement fails on any of these or other grounds, the Court may rule it invalid. Gilson-Moreau & Associates, P.S. can provide guidance and sound advice in the creation of prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements that meet the requirements of Washington State law.

If the financial or family circumstances of the couple change, it makes sense to revisit the agreement. In these situations, our firm can create a post-nuptial agreement that recognizes and accounts for these changes.

Challenges to Enforceability

Our attorneys can review how and when your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement prepared and the circumstances since the agreement was signed to determine the likelihood of a court enforcing the terms of the agreement.
