Void Prenups and What They Mean
You’ve finally found the man of your dreams and are ready to take the plunge. As a smart business woman, you’ve decided to have a San Francisco prenup drafted. However, you have heard of situations in which women lose everything because of loopholes that make their prenups void. Knowing where these mistakes can occur may help you avoid such a mess.
- Prenups are typically dependent on the complete disclosure of all assets. Omitting an asset, even by accident, can cause the entire document to become void. For example, if you want to keep the car you had from before your marriage, but paid for some of the payments out of a joint marital account instead of one just in your name, you may not have any say over the matter—even if your prenup states that the vehicle is yours—if there was an asset omission.
Preventing a Void Prenup
- Now is not the time for a do-it-yourself prenup. Attorneys attend law school for years and learn everything there is to know about creating prenuptial agreements. They are taught to make them iron-clad. Can you say the same about yourself? In all likelihood, your prenup will not go uncontested. Your ex will likely protest everything on that piece of paper. Wouldn’t you feel more comfortable about it knowing a seasoned professional drafted the document?
