How to Get a Prenup in Centennial

The steps it take to get a prenuptial agreement in Colorado include:

  1. Have a consultation with an attorney.

    • Schedule an initial consultation with an experienced premarital agreement attorney. During this meeting, you'll discuss your specific circumstances, concerns, and goals. Our Centennial prenup lawyers will explain the legalities and benefits of a prenuptial agreement and address any questions you may have.

  2. Retain independent legal counsel.

    • You may be wondering if you and your future spouse can share the same attorney for your prenup. It's highly recommended that both parties seek independent legal counsel to review and advise on the prenuptial agreement. This ensures fairness, protects each person's rights, and minimizes the risk of future disputes.

  3. Provide a full financial disclosure.

    • Both parties must provide complete and accurate financial disclosure. It's crucial to be transparent during this process to ensure the validity and enforceability of the prenuptial agreement. This includes disclosing:

      • Assets

      • Debts

      • Income

      • Liabilities

  4. Your attorneys will negotiate on your behalf and draft a prenup.

    • Based on your consultation and financial disclosures, your lawyer will negotiate the terms of the prenuptial agreement on your behalf. We will work closely with you and your future spouse to create a customized document that addresses your specific concerns and objectives.

  5. When both parties are satisfied, signing and execution will proceed.

    • Once both parties are satisfied with the terms of the prenuptial agreement, your lawyer will arrange a signing ceremony. It's important that both parties sign the agreement voluntarily and without coercion. Proper execution is vital for the enforceability of the prenuptial agreement.

  6. Your prenuptial agreement will be notarized and registered.

    • To further strengthen the enforceability of the prenuptial agreement, it is advisable to have it notarized and recorded in the appropriate county office in Colorado.

The Difference Between a Prenuptial and a Postnuptial Agreement

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are designed to help spouses protect their assets and property in the event of a divorce. While they generally serve the same function and provide the same benefits, the primary difference between them is that one is signed before the marriage and the other is signed after the marriage. Oftentimes, postnuptial agreements are created as a type of ultimatum to make a struggling marriage work.

Here are some of the benefits of creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement:

  • You will define your expectations
  • You will have a sense of financial security
  • It can provide peace of mind
  • If you divorce, the process will be more efficient

Aside from addressing asset and property division, there are a few other unique provisions spouses can include in a marital agreement, such as who will receive custody of a dog, cat, or other pet. However, you cannot include anything related to your children, such as custody or support.

Creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement does not mean that you believe your marriage will fail. Moreover, if you later decide together that you no longer want your prenuptial agreement, you can revoke it. Keep that in mind as you and your partner move forward.
