Las Vegas Prenup Lawyer

Creating Prenuptial Agreements in Nevada

A prenuptial agreement, also known as a "prenup," is a legal document that addresses a couple's specific desires for property distribution in the event of a divorce. The agreement is a contract that is made between couples before entering a marriage. Prenups typically have a bad reputation, but they are simply a preventive measure than can help protect a person's assets in the event of a divorce.

If you are considering establishing a prenuptial agreement in Las Vegas, do not try to undertake this legal matter on your own. Because prenuptial agreements are documents that are prepared with the sole purpose of protecting your assets, one minor mistake could potentially put all of your property, money, and assets in danger. Speak with a Las Vegas prenuptial agreement attorney from Leavitt Law Firm for assistance with protecting your children's inheritances, your home, retirement funds, or other assets that you want to protect after a divorce.

Uniform Premarital Agreement Act

Just as every marrying couple is different, there are no two prenuptial agreements that are identical. There are general assets that must be covered in a prenuptial agreement, and a skilled Las Vegas divorce lawyer from our firm can make certain that your agreement protects the things that you have worked so hard to obtain as well as assets you wish to leave to children from a previous relationship, for example.

According to the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act, a prenup can cover the following:

  • How to make joint assets during a marriage
  • Acquisition of any rights, interest, or community property
  • Modifications of alimony or spousal support
  • All debts that each of the parties sustained prior to the marriage
  • All gifts, marital residence, or alimony acquired during the marriage
  • The making of a will, trust, or any other arrangement during the marriage
  • Future status of increases in separate property, such as proceeds, awards, earnings, or profits

Although Las Vegas is known for quick and easy weddings, marriage and divorce are treated seriously in the state of Nevada. Prenuptial agreements must be written and signed by both parties and are enforceable immediately after marriage.
