Engage a Denver Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

Planning for a wedding is thrilling. While looking toward a bright and beautiful future is exciting, it can also cause anxiety.  Marriage is more than love and companionship. In fact, formalizing a union often requires merging the financial positions of two separate lives, including assets and debts. This process can be overwhelming and, for many, concerning.

It is well known that a significant percentage of marriages end in divorce. While hoping for a long and mutually rewarding relationship is common, taking the time to plan for life, should things change, is wise. Creating a prenuptial agreement is exactly what you need.  This document identifies a plan for the future should your marriage end. Among other things, it shares the division of assets, assignment of debt, and possible spousal support.

Prenuptial agreements are insurance plans, of sorts.

Unfortunately, nothing in life is guaranteed. Creating a legally binding prenuptial agreement can be reassuring — it does not leave the future to chance. The guidance of a seasoned divorce attorney experienced in drafting prenuptial agreements is incredibly valuable; you want to be confident that your wishes are represented correctly and your future protected appropriately.

What Our Team Will Do For You

Understanding the Service We Provide

Drafting and executing a prenuptial agreement in Colorado is a multistep process best addressed with the help of a skilled Denver prenuptial agreement lawyer. At Price Family Law, we are proud of our reputation for helping our clients with their prenuptial needs and creating documents that effectively represent their current financial positions as well as their plans should the marriage end.  When you engage us, we will:

  • Gain an Understanding of You as a Couple: In all cases, knowledge is power. Thus, sitting down with you to better appreciate who you are and what you want is critical in planning for your future. When it comes to prenuptial agreements, surprises are never good. We need to have an open and honest discussion.
  • Review Your Finances: In order to plan for the future, we must have a clear picture of the parties’ current financial positions. This includes assets (savings, real estate, vehicles, jewelry and art, to name just a few), liabilities (for example, credit card debt, student loans, mortgages, and alimony), and income (from your job or investments). Independently prepared financial statements can be helpful.
  • Identify Parameters: Prenuptial agreements in Colorado provide a financial plan in case a marriage ends in divorce. They can address spousal support, categorize marital and nonmarital assets and debts, and create plans for the division of assets. Additionally, some couples set a length of time for the agreement to be valid (for example, 10 years of marriage). This is known as a sunset clause. In many cases, at the conclusion of this period, alimony payments agreed to in the prenup may end.
  • Draft the Agreement: Our prenuptial attorneys will draft the paperwork in accordance with the laws of Colorado and present it to you for signing.

We handle the entire process from beginning to end, providing calm and reassuring legal guidance and advice. Because we are not personally involved in your relationship, we are able to be both neutral and practical in all communications.

An Overview of Prenuptial Agreements

Why Would You Want a Prenuptial Agreement?

Contrary to the belief of many, couples do not create prenuptial agreements because they believe their marriages are doomed.  In fact, they are executed “just in case.” Wise people plan for all outcomes.

Some of the most common reasons for these documents include safeguarding estate plans of family members, formally keeping finances separate, providing debt protection, formalizing insurance wishes, outlining property and asset division, and protecting children of previous marriages.

As we all know, life is unpredictable and it’s always better to be prepared.

Understanding Colorado Requirements

Prenuptial contracts in Colorado are direct in their nature. In order to be enforceable several conditions must be met.  They must:

  • be written (oral agreements are not acceptable)
  • be voluntary
  • not contradict any prior pre or post nuptial agreements
  • be signed by both individuals.

These agreements do not go into effect until the couple is legally married and they take into account accurate financial information.
