Same-Sex Prenuptial Agreements
An estimated 6% of the households in WeHo are reportedly same sex unmarried partner households, but with the recent Supreme Court ruling confirming the legality of same sex marriages in the United States, the number of same sex married partners are expected to increase in the city.
Same sex couples are covered by the same family law provisions governing heterosexuals in California. This means having the same rights and obligations in marriage and divorce, as well as the right to enter into prenuptial agreements to govern aspects such as spousal support, child support, child custody, and marital assets.
Many same-sex couples may have been partners living together for years, and are likely to have acquired substantial assets before getting married. It’s important to document all your agreements and understanding regarding these assets before tying the knot.
In West Hollywood and other parts of Los Angeles County, California, the Lavinsky Law firm has been helping same sex-clients navigate complicated family law provisions affecting their married relations and have advised a number of clients before signing on their prenuptial agreements.
