Comprehensive Postnuptial Agreement Guidance in Scottsdale

Postnuptial agreements are often more relevant in second marriages following a first divorce, or in a situation where one spouse has significant assets and the other does not. These agreements can help to avoid litigation in a divorce by outlining the financial arrangements in the event of a dissolution of the marriage.

Understanding Postnuptial Agreements in Arizona

A postnuptial agreement is an agreement entered into by two people after they are married. Postnuptial agreements can cover a wide range of issues, including property ownership and spousal support. Because these agreements are entered into after the marriage, they are sometimes referred to as "posterior" or "post-marital" agreements.

Common Scenarios for Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial agreements are most commonly used in the following situations:

  • If one spouse has significantly more assets than the other
  • If one spouse has children from a previous relationship
  • If one spouse is significantly older than the other
  • If one spouse has a high-risk profession, such as an airline pilot or firefighter

Postnuptial agreements are also important in second marriages after a first divorce, especially if the divorcing couple has children and significant assets. Since the couple have already been married, the court sees their assets differently than if they were entering into a marriage with no prenuptial agreement.

Steps to Drafting a Postnuptial Agreement

Before you enter into a postnuptial agreement, you should consult with an Arizona divorce lawyer to ensure that the agreement will hold up in court. You will need to show that you entered into the agreement voluntarily, and that you were fully informed of the agreement's implications. If you need help drafting an agreement, our Scottsdale divorce lawyers can assist you. We can draft a postnuptial agreement that outlines your rights and obligations, including spousal support.

Legal Validity of Postnuptial Agreements in Scottsdale

Arizona courts will generally enforce a postnuptial agreement if the agreement was entered into voluntarily and without duress. The agreement must also be fair and reasonable.

Top Advantages of Postnuptial Agreements

While postnuptial agreements may not be as well-known as prenuptial agreements, they offer several important benefits for married couples. Some of the advantages of having a postnuptial agreement include:

  • Clarifying financial expectations and responsibilities within the marriage
  • Protecting assets and property acquired during the marriage
  • Addressing potential issues that may arise in the event of divorce or separation
  • Providing peace of mind and security for both spouses
  • Streamlining the divorce process by outlining asset division and spousal support
