Tying the knot, jumping the broom, getting hitched; whatever you want to call it, getting married is a huge milestone in most people’s lives. Marriage can be a great journey to embark on and most couples look forward to wedding planning and a long life together. One thing to consider before making your way to the altar, however, is having you and your fiancé draft a prenuptial agreement. Prenuptial agreements, or pre-marital agreements, are not a draft for destruction, but rather a preventative measure that can help you protect your assets that came into the marriage in the event that something goes sour.
Prenuptial agreements in Arizona are governed by the Arizona Family Code and are seen as a legally binding contract between two people entering into the throes of holy matrimony. These agreements will cover everything from financial issues to property division. These agreements are drafted prior to marriage with the assistance of a dedicated attorney and come into full effect after the marriage takes place. In the event that a pre-nuptial agreement is actually enforced, there are regulations and laws pertaining to the enforcement and legality of the contract itself. If you are considering obtaining a prenuptial agreement, it is recommended that you work with an attorney from Jensen Family Law right away.
Some individuals will choose to obtain a pre-nuptial agreement simply because they are looking out for the best interests of themselves and their partner, however, there are some cases that you should consider obtaining a prenuptial agreement. If, for example, you are much wealthier than your fiancé, or your fiancé has a large amount of debt. In these cases, you definitely need a lawyer for the drafting of your prenuptial agreement in Mesa AZ. Another circumstance to reconsider would be if you were remarrying or leaving your career to be a stay-at-home parent and solely raise children. If you own a portion of a business or you earn much more than your fiancé, these agreements can help protect you and what is rightfully yours in the event of a divorce.
