Parties in Arizona can change many things about how their future, potential divorce would turn out under the Arizona laws using a premarital agreement. For example, in a divorce case, the judge is going to virtually always rule that income earned during the marriage is community property. However, using a prenuptial agreement, you can decide to treat all income earned during the marriage as separate property. There are many other aspects of the law that can be changed as well, such as how ownership of real estate will be handled, whether spousal maintenance (alimony) will be required, whether children’s college education must be paid, and various other issues that would usually turn out differently in an Arizona divorce trial in the absence of a prenuptial agreement.
Drafting an effective and valid prenuptial agreement can be challenging, however. Working with a lawyer who is knowledgeable about Arizona’s laws and regulations can help you create a prenuptial agreement that meets your needs. An experienced prenup attorney can also help ensure that the agreement is fair and enforceable under Arizona law.
