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.

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.

Happy Clients

  • I felt that he always had my best interest in mind!

    “I selected Jeff to represent me because he specialized divorce cases and had worked with the Ventura County judges for many years. He was very patient with me as dealt with the emotions of getting a divorce after a 19-year marriage, and helped me through the terrible stress of facing my ex-spouse and being in the courtroom. He gave me very good advice on how to manage the property settlement, especially on when I should capitulate and when I should hold my ground. I felt that he always had my best interest in mind (rather than just collecting his fee) and worked diligently to bring the case to a fair conclusion.”

He knew and understood my case and was very professional in representing me. Furthermore, I knew he was well respected in the courtroom and by other attorneys. He worked efficiently to get the best and honest result for my family in child support matters. I would absolutely hire him again and definitely recommend him to anyone in need of family law representation.”

  • Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount we paid cut down by more than half!!

    “Jeffrey handled my Family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex’s got a big child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to Jeffrey handled my family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex-wife. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex-wife had a huge child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to court for that!! Then, she started coming after us for this big child support money every month. She wouldn’t even let her kids come over to visit with us and my kids, but just wanted the money and my husband wasn’t working. My co-worker went to Jeff for her divorce and she told me to call and talk to him. I am so thankful that I called him. I talked to him and he explained everything to me. I needed that because I didn’t know what to do. My husband and I met with him in his office. Jeff and the secretary were both so nice and very professional. I completely trust them! Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount my husband pays to his ex-wife cut down by more than half!! And on top of that got the judge to make my husband’s ex let the kids come and visit with my husband, who is still hurt, and my kids. Everything worked out so much better than I thought it could. I didn’t know we had a choice and that we could go to the judge to lower the support AND let us see the kids. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who need help with family law. Very Helpful.”
