Prenuptial & Postmarital Agreements

As a premier family law firm in Denver, we've earned a reputation for being the family lawyers Denver couples trust for protecting their financial and business interests before entering a marriage.

Prenuptial agreements, also known as marital agreements or ante-nuptial agreements, are often vilified as anti-marriage agreements. However, often they are necessary protective documents for spouses with financial or business interests. If you are wealthy, own a business or your prospective spouse has a high debt burden, you may want to establish rights for both partners before getting married. This is especially true if you have prior children whose financial futures you are interested in protecting.

Preventing Future Conflicts Through Proper Planning

A prenuptial agreement can be used to protect both parties from future conflicts upon dissolution of marriage or the death of one the spouses. The agreement also helps to protect the rights of children and other beneficiaries upon a person's death. While it may be difficult or uncomfortable to think in terms of the end of the marriage at the beginning, it can be a valuable protective agreement for both parties.

Prenuptial agreements often set out the terms of possession of assets, treatment of future earnings, and property division if the marriage is later dissolved. Because these agreements can be difficult to draft and some provisions may not be enforceable, it is important to see a lawyer if you are considering entering into a pre-marital or post-marital agreement.
