Marital Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is binding legal document between prospective spouses which contemplates financial allocations if their marriage ends. A postnuptial agreement is a binding legal document between spouses. In Arizona, married couples who do not have a prenuptial agreement, and subsequently divorce, will discover that community property principles will govern financial aspects.
Top reasons for Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement:

  • One party has significantly greater assets than the other.
  • There is considerable income disparity between parties, either currently or in the future.
  • Not a first marriage for either one or both spouses.
  • There are children from prior marriages.
  • One partner has substantial amount of outstanding debt.
  • One party owns a business or a sizable interest in a business.
  • Contemplation of extensive lifestyle changes in the future.
