Prenuptial/Premarital Agreements

Under Oregon law, parties may enter into an agreement before their marriage concerning the disposition of their property if their marriage dissolves or upon a parties’ death.  A prenuptial agreement agreement should address the parties rights and obligations in their property, their rights to transfer or encumber their property, the disposition of property on separation, divorce, death or any other event, and the modification or elimination of spousal support.

There are four essential requisites to a valid prenuptial agreement:

1.  Full financial disclosure

2.  Sufficient time to consider all the legal and other implications of the prenuptial agreement.

3.  Separate legal representation.

4.  Proper acknowledgment.

A prenuptial agreement becomes effective upon marriage. Please contact the law office of James J. Pedrojetti P.C. if you need a prenuptial agreement drafted or reviewed.
