Prenuptial Agreements and Other Family Documents

Creating and Maintaining Your Family Documents

At The Law Offices of Derek Lim, we help those in California and across the world with legal documents pertaining to themselves and their families. We offer our services in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai and Laotian, and are dedicated to meeting your goals quickly and effectively. Our core family business involves two areas: prenuptial agreements and name/date of birth changes.

Prenuptial Agreements

Drafting a prenuptial agreement is one of the smartest things a couple can do. Your marriage should be about you, not about your assets or any other condition surrounding your marriage. That is why our law firm helps you draft an agreement that works for your unique needs. Every couple and their marriage are unique and have special niches and circumstances that require a plan that carefully caters to their needs. By setting out the terms and establishing proper boundaries early, you can avoid serious conflicts in the future.

Attorney Derek Lim also frequently works with couples who have a spouse abroad and speaks several languages — including Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai, and Laotian. We understand the unique challenges of multinational couples in drafting prenuptial agreements and can make sure your rights are protected. We also provide legal assistance regarding immigration law, whether it concerns business or family. Talk to our skilled and accredited family law attorneys working from our Fremont and San Francisco locations. Check out our pages on immigration law to learn more.

Date of Birth and Name Changes

Modifying your documents to reflect a name change or to correct date of birth is more complicated than it sounds. It’s not as simple as just submitting an application, but in most cases requiring a judge or magistrate to review and approve the change. Of course, there are exceptions to what reasons are considered valid grounds for name changes such as hiding criminal liability.

Considering how it can affect how you obtain government services or future job prospects, it can understandably appear nerve-racking to some. We also know that those from the immigrant community during their residence in the U.S. may want to change or alter their name(s) to suit their personal needs and desires, which is an area that utilizes both our expertise in immigration and family law. One mistake and you could run into serious trouble in the future. Our law firm handles these situations quickly and skillfully. We worry about the details, so you don’t have to. We will make the process as smooth and with little trouble as possible.
