My husband and I were secretly married in 2011. Afterwards, we planned a wedding for the family's sake. The premarital agreement was signed after our 1st wedding but before the 2nd. It stipulates what I will receive in event of his death. A few months later his revocable trust was amended. It states I receive the same as is in premarital agreement. But the marriage date listed is that of the 2nd marriage. He died the next month. Are these documents valid in the state of California?Trustees are claiming premarital agreement is null and void since it was signed after the Dec 2011 marriage. Still, the trust is in place. But the date on the trust is that of the 2nd marriage. Will it stand up in court? I only want what my husband intended for me. Trustee is saying I deserve nothing.
