Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Aside from the central emotional commitment of a marriage, a married couple will also hold a number of legal and financial commitments to one another. Putting these other commitments in a clearly worded, agreed-upon document is a simple way of protecting the interests of both spouses throughout the full course of their relationship. The Phoenix prenuptial agreement lawyers at Oracle Law Group are happy to help you establish those terms in a legally-binding agreement.

If you and your partner are interested in drafting a postnuptial or prenuptial agreement in the Phoenix area, our empathetic attorneys can help you both work out all the details.

Spouses can enter into spousal agreements before marriage, or at any time during the marriage to control certain aspects of the marital property. These agreements are most commonly used to define property as separate instead of community, and to provide terms for spousal support, if any.

Phoenix Prenuptial agreements:
A prenuptial agreement is not a forecast of failure. While nobody gets married expecting it to end in divorce, statistics indicate that nearly half of all marriages are dissolved. A prenuptial agreement is simply a planning tool. Hopefully, you will never have to use it. But, if you do, having a prenuptial agreement makes the divorce process easier and more certain.

Postnuptial agreements:
Spouses can also enter into marital agreements after they have married. Postnuptial agreements are used to resolve financial disputes between spouses, and they can sometimes provide an alternative to divorce or separation. With a properly drafted postnuptial agreement, spouses can separate their income and other property and establish clear financial boundaries.
