Q: Do I need a lawyer if my fiancée’s attorney prepared our prenuptial agreement?
In California, both prospective spouses need to have a lawyer and their lawyers must both sign off on the prenuptial agreement. Additionally, there must be a 7-day time gap between presenting the agreement and having it signed by the spouses.
Q: How do we revoke a prenuptial agreement?
You can throw it away, but it’s better to do it in a more formal way. If you’re going to revoke the agreement, do so with a witness or attorneys, or at least have someone who can independently say that both sides agreed to revoke the agreement, and that it is no longer in effect.
