Prenuptial Agreements

Utah County Premarital Agreements Attorney

Getting married can be a stressful thing, you want the ceremony to be memorable, you want the reception to go well, and then there’s the dreaded cold feet. On top of all that if you have considerable property or assets prior to the marriage you have the stress of trusting someone with ownership to your financial stability and future. Although its not considered the most romantic of gestures there is one way to protect yourself in case the marriage does fail and you file for divorce, and that is through a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement or premarital agreement as it is often referred to is a contract between an engaged couple setting out the guidelines for how a divorce will be handled if the marriage results in that.

Why Sign a Prenuptial Agreement?

The common scenario for a prenuptial agreement is for parties that have been previously married and divorce or parties that are getting married later in life and have accrued considerable assets. The reason for a prenup is to protect your assets so they aren’t all converted into marital property which will be required to be divided evenly between the parties at the time of divorce. This can be especially important if you have money or property that you want to live to your children from a previous marriage, or if you have a business that you want to go to your parties or someone else instead of your soon to be spouse.
