Certified Family Law Specialist Attorney
Orange County Prenuptial Agreement Attorney

California Prenuptial Agreements

Barb McNamara is a family law attorney serving Orange County, CA.  She helps clients with prenups.

California’s Premarital Agreement Act

When two people choose to get married, the last thing they want to think about is a prenuptial agreement, or even a postnuptial agreement. Society as a whole considers these things “unromantic,” and couples are pressured to forgo prenups and post nuptial agreements if they “really love each other.”

Orange County attorney for prenup agreementHowever, with 50% of marriages ending in divorce, couples who choose not to draft a legal prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement may end up losing many of their assets in a separation.

An agreement is designed to protect assets such as money and property that were yours before the marriage, as well as provide a fair division of assets that were acquired during the marriage.

Following a divorce, you may need said assets to help you start your life over again and learn how to live without your partner. If you lose them as a result of not having an agreement, life after separation can be even more difficult.

A prenuptial agreement is one that is drafted before the couple legally marries, while a postnuptial agreement is drafted after the couple is married – for example, if the couple decides that having an agreement is a good idea after all.

As a certified family law specialist, I understand the importance of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and I have the skills and experience necessary to ensure that you and your partner are protected in the event of a divorce.

If you are considering discussing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, you need an experienced, qualified family law attorney by your side to help guide you through the process. Call me today at (714) 740-2542 for a consultation.

My name is Cheryl Stack and I work for Chapman University in Orange, California. I have been employed with Chapman for twenty three years. Attorney Barbara McNamara was referred to me by the law offices of Aitkin, Aitkin and Cohn in September 2011. I was the victim of a harassment/stalking situation for over one year and was seeking legal assistance to get the female perpetrator to stop. At the time of my first meeting with Barbara, I had filed two police reports with the City of Orange Police department. I had also met with another attorney prior to meeting Barbara. After our first initial......
Barbara McNamara was recommended to me by a co-worker who had seen her in action while waiting for his case to be heard. My friend did not have representation at the time and was fine with that–until he saw Barbara. He said she was a TIGER in the courtroom! I took his advice and retained Barbara as my attorney. Barbara had her game face on when I met her and it was awesome! She had an intensity when listening to me talk, I knew she was totally engaged with what I had to say. Barbara laid it on the line and gave her candid opinion, which I appreciated and still appreciate. We.....
I would recommend Ms. McNamara because I believe she’s an attorney who is there for the child’s best interest. Plus, when it came to returning phone calls they were in 24 hours or less and great at replying to emails. Thank you for your help and patience throughout my trial. Thank you, Barbara! –A. Esparza
