Phoenix Attorney: Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement can assure that you and your intended spouse agree on what is separate, premarital property — and separate, premarital debt. The agreement can also deal with marital rights and obligations and with issues that might arise if the marriage ends. The lawyers at the R. J. Peters & Associates law firm are here to guide you through the agreement process and assure that your interests are protected.

Premarital agreements are often used in second marriages to protect the rights of the children of the first marriage. A prenup can also assure that assets owned before the marriage are identified as separate property. Our family law attorneys also prepare postnuptial agreements to quantify rights from that point forward.
Does there have to be a full disclosure of all property in a prenuptial agreement? Full disclosure of all assets and obligations of both parties is key to the enforceability of prenuptial agreements. If a party fails to disclose significant assets or obligations it could seriously impact the legal validity of the agreement.
Do both parties to a prenuptial agreement need to consult an attorney? Although it is not mandatory that anybody ever seek out the services of a lawyer, it is generally advisable. Anyone contemplating the signing of a prenuptial contract should consult with a lawyer before signing it. By having your own attorney review the agreement, you can assure that your rights are protected.
