Arizona Separation, Prenuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements Attorneys

The Law Firm of M. Paul Fischer, P.C. has extensive experience drafting legal separation, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. When individuals decide to file a legal separation, they agree to lead separate lives without getting divorced.

For individuals with substantial assets or businesses, these agreements can be an essential part of securing their futures. For others, a pre-marital agreement establishes the groundwork for a lasting marriage.

Separation Agreements

In a legal separation, a couple agrees to divide property and determine child custody (legal decision making), child support and parenting time as in divorce. A legal separation is helpful for couples with irreconcilable differences who may need to keep medical insurance, e.g. and is a useful estate planning tool.  A legal separation action can also address child custody matters.

The attorneys at the Law Firm of M. Paul Fischer P.C. can help draft a separation agreement that protects the rights and assets of our client.

Prenuptial Agreements

Our attorneys have helped draft many complex pre-nuptial agreements. Individuals undertake pre-marital agreements (pre-nuptial agreements) for a variety of reasons. Reasons for a pre-marital agreement, or pre-nuptial agreement, include:

Post-Marital Agreements

In Arizona postnuptial or post-marital agreements are valid if they are not made under duress and with full disclosure and an opportunity to obtain their own independent counsel along with proper consideration. They are made for a wide variety of reasons, including divorce settlements, division of property, and property settlements. Typical reasons include:

  • One spouse believes that the marriage is rocky and wants protection
  • Long-married couples who always intended to draft a pre-nuptial agreement but never got around to it
  • Couples who find this a useful estate planning tool
