“I'm about to remarry, can we do our own prenup? Will my ex still need to pay alimony payments when I remarry ?”
By law in California, prenuptial agreements signed without advice by a competent attorney will be held invalid as a matter of law. There is a mandatory waiting period as well. Please plan on taking care of this prior to setting the date for the wedding.
Almost certainly not, but a careful review of the legal document is imperative. This obviously needs to be done prior to the marriage. If that is no longer an option, due perhaps to hasty decision making, the possibility of a Nullity needs to be explored. Above all, keep your mouth shut until you get some legal advice.
