Protect your legal assets with nuptial agreement
No one plans to get divorced before they get married. Unfortunately, nearly half of marriages in the United States end in divorce, so it makes sense to at least acknowledge the possibility. Because Arizona is a community property state, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be important for couples in Arizona who are concerned about protecting their financial assets in the event of divorce.
How a prenuptial agreement works
A prenuptial agreement is a contract a couple enters into in anticipation of marriage. Creating a prenuptial agreement allows you and your spouse to protect certain assets from being subject to division should you get a divorce later. Many couples find that having created a prenuptial agreement actually helps their marriage get off to a better start because they have learned to discuss and negotiate important financial matters.
A postnuptial agreement is an agreement entered into after a marriage has taken place, but before a divorce is initiated. As with premarital agreements, one or both of the spouses usually is seeking to protect assets or income in the event of divorce.
