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.

    Former Client

  • Mr. Graff, thank you so very much for all you have done for me and my family.

    “I am writing this to let you know how much I appreciate all your past services in completing my divorce and inter-spousal transfer deed! I want to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for your expertise, patience, and professionalism during a very difficult time in my life.Thanks to you taking good care of my case, I refinanced my home in March of this year, and finally have the new deed in my name! This blessing is because you agreed to take my case and you and your staff completed the transaction through the end ... thank you! Mr. Graff, thank you so very much for all you have done for me and my family I am very appreciative and wanted you to know.”

    Former Client

  • 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.”

    Mrs. M

  • 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.”

    Melissa

  • 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.”
