Drafting a valid prenuptial agreement can be tricky

It is not uncommon for Colorado couples to enter into marriages with already-accumulated assets. The most appropriate way in which to protect those assets may be to draft a prenuptial agreement. However, without the guidance of a skilled attorney for each party, the agreement may not properly express the wishes of each spouse. Legal counsel can also ensure that the final agreement will hold up in court.

The Colorado Marital Agreement Act governs prenuptial agreements. According to this law, certain steps must be taken to draft a legal agreement. Failure to follow the required steps accurately can result in the court refusing to accept the contract. With the help of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Brandon R. Ceglian P.C. a strong contract that complies with statutory guidelines can be drafted.

Couples who failed to sign prenups before marriage may opt to develop and sign postmarital agreements. They may not have owned significant assets at the time of their weddings, but circumstances change. One party may have established a business or entered into other endeavors that need protection. In such circumstances, a postmarital contract can be signed.

Drafting a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial contract is an important matter, and without the guidance of skilled family law attorneys, such documents may be of no use. These agreements can be used to address multiple issues, including how the couple's finances will be managed and how a parent who leaves employment to care for children will be remunerated in the event of a divorce. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Brandon R. Ceglian P.C. have the experience to lead clients through the process while also ensuring that nothing is forgotten.
