Nevada Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys
Financial disputes are the number one reason for divorce in America. A prenuptial agreement is designed to identify financial concerns and establish expectations. Rather than being a “plan for divorce” an effective prenuptial agreement can serve as divorce prevention.
What is a prenuptial agreement?
Prenuptial agreements are legal contracts and thus, they should not be entered into lightly. Premarital agreements have an impact on your finances, your family, and your future. Working with an experienced prenuptial agreement attorney ensures that you are entering a fair and realistic premarital agreement. Prenuptial agreements are often viewed as divorce prevention tools.
Unfortunately, some prenuptial agreements are unfair, illegal, and even deemed unconscionable, and therefore, are unenforceable. Some premarital agreements are simply unrealistic. As a result, it is important to have an attorney that understands the boundaries of prenuptial agreements and can help you and your partner craft a fair and enforceable document.
Why cant we just write down on a piece of paper who gets what? Why do we need a lawyer?
There are so many reasons that a do-it-yourself prenuptial agreement is a bad idea that we cannot state them all here. While there are many legal documents that can be drafted on your own, a prenup is not one of them. In our experience most prenups that were drafted by divorcing spouses themselves, or even drafted by a notary, have been deemed unenforceable. Furthermore, Nevada has an entire statute (NRS 123A),dedicated to the content and enforcement of prenups.
In the event the parties draft their own prenup and get divorced, the divorce judge will look to the statute to see if the prenup complies – in most cases, the prenup does not meet the strict standards of the statutes and will be deemed unenforceable. Simply, having a prenup drafted by an Nevada prenup attorney ensures that the agreement is sound and complies with the law.
