Prenuptial Agreements in Scottsdale, Arizona
Scottsdale Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer
A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract agreed upon before marriage. This protective contract, commonly referred to as a “prenup,” is used to make sure that there are no misunderstandings about property or money. Arizona is a state that recognizes “community property laws,” which means that all property, money, possessions, and debt, upon divorce, is split 50/50.
Prenups have actually become more common. For many Scottsdale residents, it is important before stating “I Do!” to state what possessions, debt, property ,or money each person has before the marriage, then determine how they would be distributed upon death or divorce. Couples in Scottsdale that have large and lucrative businesses, for example often choose the prenup. The prenuptial agreement shouldn’t be viewed as a bad or negative thing — it is actually the responsible way to communicate a couple’s intentions.
