Why Do People Get Prenuptial Agreements?

There are many reasons why people choose to get a prenuptial agreement, including:

  • Protecting the financial interests of a spouse
  • Ensuring fair distribution of property in the event of a divorce
  • Establishing separate property to protect it from being divided in a divorce
  • Protecting personal property and assets, such as retirement accounts and inheritances

Prenuptial agreements can be particularly helpful for people with a substantial amount of property or a high net worth. These types of people may want to get a prenup to protect their property in the event of a divorce.

What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Include?

There are various components that may be included in a prenuptial agreement, including:

  • Separate property – This refers to property that is obtained before the marriage
  • Community property – This refers to property that is obtained during the marriage
  • Disclosure of financial information – This includes disclosing all assets and debts
  • Agreement not to claim community property – This refers to an agreement not to claim half of an asset or debt that was obtained before the marriage
  • Provisions for child support and spousal support

Prenuptial agreements can also include terms for a separate property agreement, which defines how property will be divided in the event of a divorce.

Does a Prenuptial Agreement Need to Be Notarized?

In Utah, prenuptial agreements do not need to be notarized. However, it is a good idea to have a lawyer review the agreement to make sure all the information is correct, especially if it is a complex prenup.
