Mark D. Gershenson Attorney at Law in Palm Springs, California, is an experienced divorce attorney, specializing in aspects of family law including domestic partnerships and prenuptial agreements. When it comes to knowing all aspects of family law, you have found the best.

Divorce Legal Services
Divorce should be a last resort and not anyone's first instinct. Although it may be among the most stressful and upsetting parts of your life, sometimes it's unavoidable. Faced with a divorce, you need high-quality representation. With more than 30 years' experience, I am well versed in the challenges of navigating through the complex maze of divorce.
My Areas Of Focus:
 
  • Family-Owned Businesses
  • Child Custody/Visitation
  • Spousal Support
 
  • Parent Relocation
  • Paternity Issues
  • Post-Judgment Modifications
 
  • Military Divorces
  • Parenting Plans
  • Same Sex Divorces
 
 
Prenuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are especially valuable for couples who have previously been married or who have substantially different levels of wealth and income. In fact, a well-drafted prenuptial agreement can substantially lessen the pain and expense of a divorce if a contemplated marriage did not make it to the "death do us part" phase.

It is extremely important to provide a full list of assets and have them signed far in advance to make sure you're covered, because unfortunately in California, if you don't have a prenuptial agreement, the law imposes one on you. It's called community property. If you believe that a prenuptial agreement would be right for you, please contact me as far in advance of your anticipated wedding as possible.

Domestic Partnership
In California, registered domestic partners have the same rights and representation in court as recognized married heterosexual couples. You can enter into a domestic partnership by signing a pre-registration agreement, which is similar to a prenuptial agreement.

As with a prenuptial agreement, the full disclosure of assets is of crucial importance. Furthermore, the legal process to dissolve a domestic partnership is virtually identical to the process dissolving a marriage. I have represented parties involved in same-sex relationships both registered and non-registered, and am pleased to serve that component of our community.
Post Nuptial Agreements
Growing in popularity, post nuptial agreements are written up after the marriage or civil union has occurred in order to distinguish assets and/or property if a separation or divorce occurs. A post nuptial is a legal contract that is notarized.
