In the absence of a prenuptial agreement, it is up to the divorcing couple
to determine how to
divide their joint property and
debts—either with the assistance of a divorce attorney or on their own.
If they are unable to reach an agreement, the court must intervene. Though
the state of Arizona does not require that the division of marital property
and debt be
exactly equal, it does require that it be "fair"—a condition that
is subject to much interpretation.
Why should I obtain a prenuptial agreement?
Though a prenup may be an awkward subject for some couples to approach,
the fact remains that somewhere around half of all American marriages
end in divorce. A prenuptial agreement is one way to avoid the contentious
property grab that can occur during a divorce.
A prenuptial agreement is advisable when:
- One spouse has significantly more wealth or earning potential than the other
- One spouse is set to inherit a substantial amount of property or assets
- One spouse has children from a prior relationship to care for
- One or both spouse owns a business
- You or your spouse is expecting a lucrative career in the future
