Boulder County Prenuptial and Postnuptial Lawyer
Thinking About or Ready to Get Married and Looking for a Boulder Area Prenuptial Attorney or Already Married and Looking for a Postnuptial Law Firm That Works for Both of You So You Can Build A Foundation for Your Successful, Healthy Marriage?
When to Get a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two people who plan to marry. Many people hesitate to discuss this planning tool with their future spouses for fear of offending them before marriage. However, an open discussion about assets and what each person expects in the event of a breakup and divorce can lead to a trust-filled relationship.
So you got married without a prenuptial agreement? You can still enter into a postnuptial agreement to document how you have agreed to divide property in the event of a divorce.
The main benefit of a postnuptial agreement is to keep any property you owned before the marriage as non-marital and separate from property acquired during the marriage. Over time, assets tend to shift around and get commingled, and the postnuptial agreement will help document the non-marital assets.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
There are specific requirements that must be adhered to for executing the prenuptial agreement before the wedding date for the agreement to be valid. These requirements are set forth in Colorado’s Uniform Premarital Agreement Act. Our family law attorneys will help you create a document tailored to your specific situation that can save time and legal fees in the event of a divorce.
Items that our family law attorneys may suggest to include in a postnuptial agreement are:
- Alimony award limitations or exclusions to prevent expensive litigation in the event of a divorce
- Penalties and attorney’s fees awards in the event the agreement is challenged by the spouse
- Specific asset distributions to avoid a judge dividing assets unsatisfactorily
- Assets earmarked for children, especially from a prior marriage
- Division of assets in the event of separation with no divorce
We understand that people in different situations have different needs and concerns, and we help them find their way.
Creating, or even discussing, a postnuptial agreement with your spouse is not an admission that your marriage will end in divorce. However, knowing that divorce is a reality for over fifty (50) percent of married couples can help the two of you come to the table in a reasonable, professional manner to consider such an agreement. Perhaps you have precious non-marital assets that need protecting. Maybe you just want to hammer out a fair deal on alimony while you and your spouse are both of rational minds.
Divorces involving individuals with high net worth can be more complicated than most, which is why you should retain a Colorado family law attorney with experience in representing business owners, public figures, and other higher-income clients. We can help you draft a legally valid prenup that can preserve your wealth if the relationship doesn’t turn out to be forever. Do not despair if you married without a prenuptial agreement, as we can also assist with drafting postnuptial agreements.
