Pre-Nuptial & Post Nuptial Agreements in Westlake Village

An Attorney can Help Create Comprehensive Nuptial Agreements

There are many preparations involved in a wedding, and one of the legal aspects includes putting together a pre-nuptial agreement. Although it may not seem like the most romantic document to draft while you're happily awaiting marriage, it may actually provide both parties with a sense of security.

Whether or not you have any active concerns about financial issues or stability, I can help you to make the process as simple as possible. Pre-nuptials are especially advisable if one or both parties have financially successful careers. As an experienced Westlake Village family lawyer at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Graff, I am dedicated to providing my clients with sound legal advice and well-developed legal strategies.

What Is Included in a Pre-Nuptial Agreement?

A pre-nuptial agreement should have all of the necessary provisions, including:

  • How to divide up property which each spouse owned previously
  • How to divide property that was acquired during the marriage
  • Which party (if any) will be entitled to alimony or spousal support if the marriage ends
  • What will happen to the estate and assets if either spouse were to pass away
  • How the attorney fees would be paid if the marriage ends or if the spouses are legally separated

If you have already gotten married and would like to put together a post-nuptial agreement, I would be happy to assist you. With my knowledge and expertise, it does not have to be a tedious process. With more than 35 years of experience, I have helped many couples put together post-nuptial agreements which are thorough and cover all the necessary bases.

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”

  • I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”

  • An Amazing Lawyer!

    “I would recommend Jeffrey to anyone that is going though a divorce or child custody. He did his job and helped me get through one of the toughest parts in my life. He is amazing and I can't thank him enough for helping me with this situation. I called around to a few different attorneys and he was the one that just made me feel good and he was super feasible for my situation.”

  • In a very difficult time in my life, Mr. Graff provided excellent service to me.

    “In a very difficult time in my life, Mr. Graff provided excellent service to me. Patient with my process, he was always prompt to return my calls, and gave me realistic advice. While other lawyers might be evasive in an effort to prolong the process (hence their fees), Mr. Graff was straightforward and eager to conclude the proceedings quickly in an effort to minimize my pain.”
