Prenuptial Agreements in Arizona

Prenuptial agreements (also called premarital and antenuptial agreements) establish spouses’ property and financial rights in the event of a divorce or death for new husbands and wives who are entering into a new marriage. While no one contemplates divorce when marrying, it is commonly known that approximately 50% of all U.S. marriages end in divorce. With that statistic in mind, many consider prenuptial agreements as an avenue to minimize the adversarial nature and cost of divorce.

The fact that Arizona is a community property state makes prenuptial agreements vital for those who do not want their marital property to be split in half in a potential divorce settlement. Without such an agreement, the courts have the power to decide how your property, assets, and debt will be divided based on state law.

These agreements are beneficial, therefore, in many situations such as the following:

  • One party has greater wealth/assets accrued before the marriage than the other
  • One party owns or has a substantial interest in a business or profession
  • One party is on a lucrative career path that could create significant wealth
  • One or both parties have children from previous relationships to whom they wish to pass on inheritances or financial support
  • One party has greater debt than the other and wishes to protect the other from liability

Prenuptial agreements are based on full disclosure between the two parties and can cover such financial issues as separate vs. marital property, spousal maintenance, how marital property will be divided, how debt will be divided, and address savings accounts, pensions, retirement accounts, brokerage accounts, real estate, vehicles, life insurance policies, employee stock options, jewelry, and more. These agreements cannot address child custody or support which is subject to state law when a divorce takes place.
