Working through the issues of prenuptial agreements

When serious disputes arise between Salt Lake City residents, it can be difficult to resolve the dispute in a fair manner. To begin with, those on different sides of the dispute typically have different ideas of what is fair.

For instance, in a divorce, the parties often have drastically different ideas of what is a fair property division of the assets owned by the couple. One party might place a higher value on a certain asset that is to be distributed to the other party, and want a correspondingly higher offset for that asset.

Another frequent source of dispute has to deal with assets the individual spouses owned before the marriage. One spouse might have brought significantly more assets into the marriage than the other. Accordingly, that spouse may think it is unfair to divide those assets as marital assets, since he or she owned them before the marriage occurred.

In these instances, it can help to have a prenuptial agreement in place that spells out how the property is to be divided in the event of a divorce. Recently, this blog has discussed prenuptial agreements and the protection they can provide to couples who are about to get married. However, disputes can also arise about the enforceability of these agreements, whether as a whole or in respect to particular provisions.

Our firm understands these issues and how to help our clients work through them. Whether it is helping our clients draft a solid prenuptial agreement before the marriage, or helping our clients enforce or contest prenuptial agreements that were entered into years ago and are now at issue in a divorce, we work hard to vigorously advocate for our client's best interests.
