Unconscionable Prenuptial Agreement California

In December 1987, Barry Bonds, the baseball player, his fiancée Sun, a Swedish waitress and makeup artist who was unemployed at the time, said he wanted a wedding before the wedding scheduled for the following year. The couple lived in Phoenix, Arizona, and planned to fly to Las Vegas on February 5, 1988 and get married the next day. On the day of the robbery, Barry and Sun met at his law firm, where a marriage agreement was first submitted to him for signature. According to court testimony, she was advised to consult an independent lawyer, but refused because she had no property. The agreement also dealt with a timetable for the property and heritage of the party, but there was no such schedule attached. The California Supreme Court upheld the Court`s assertion that the agreement was voluntary: the court found that there had been no coercion. It stated that Sun had not been threatened, that it had not been forced to sign the agreement and that it had never expressed its dislike for the signing of the agreement. She found that the temporal proximity of the marriage to the signing of the agreement was not compulsive, because in the particular circumstances of the case, including the small number of guests and the informality of the marriage agreements, little embarrassment would have been followed by the postponement of the marriage. She noted that the presentation of the agreement did not surprise Sun and noted that she was aware of Barry`s desire to “protect his current property and future income” and that she was aware “at least a week before the parties signed the formal pre-marriage agreement that an agreement was foreseen.” But note that if the facts had been the same, but the marital agreement had been executed after 1 January 2002 under the new law, there may well have been a different result, since there is no written waiver of the right of an independent lawyer, no seven days of waiting and no written statement in Swedish on the effect of the marriage agreement and the rights that abandoned Sun. A court may find coercion or influence inappropriate if there is a history of domestic violence. The Case in Re Marriage of Balcof (2006) 141 Cal App.
