Phoenix Marital Agreements Attorney

SCOTTSDALE AND PHOENIX PRE-NUPTIAL AGREEMENT ATTORNEY

All marriages end through death or divorce. If and when a marriage ends through divorce, there can be an extended period of costly litigation while the parties position themselves for the court to decide how your assets and property will be divided. A premarital agreement can protect separate property brought into the marriage.

A prenuptial agreement is extremely important if one or both or the parties has children from a prior relationship or a premarital business or substantial assets. Prenuptial agreements are valid under Arizona law, so long as the parties follow the dictates of the statute.

If you are about to be married, congratulations. If you would like to plan your respective legal responsibilities and rights, and you are considering a premarital agreement, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to discuss your options.

MARITAL AGREEMENT VIA MEDIATION

One option that is gaining in popularity is for a couple to mediate their marital agreement, either a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. Once a full agreement is reached, the parties can then take the agreements to an individual family law attorney for review and signing. In some cases, this can be a smoother process than having just one party write the agreement before obtaining input from the other, especially in cases where both parties have assets that they want to isolate or children from prior marriages that they need to protect.
