Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements

  • Are you getting married?
  • Do you want a pre-nuptial agreement?
  • Do you need one?
  • Has someone asked you to sign one?
  • Do you have children from a previous marriage you need to protect?
  • Did you or will you receive a substantial inheritance that you want to make sure remains your separate property?
  • Is your family giving you money that should be accounted for as separate contribution if you dissolve the marriage later?

All of these are reasons to consider having a solid pre-marital agreement.

In Colorado, a pre-nuptial or pre-marital agreement must include, among other things, full financial disclosure and the signing of the contract without coercion or duress.

If you intend to enter into a pre-marital agreement, hire counsel and complete the deal before booking the reception, buying the dress, or registering for your gifts. Make this the priority.

Like wills or estate planning, many find very negative connotations to entering into a pre-marital agreement. See this as an opportunity to plan the ideal separation while you are in love. Ensure the love!

What should your clients know about you?

I know firsthand the intense emotions of divorce with young children, a business, and significant properties. We were able to complete our divorce in the 91 days of Colorado mandates. If I did it, so can you!

I’m convinced we can’t keep letting broken families suffer through a broken system; by working diligently to help clients through disclosures and settlement offers, we do the very best we can to help our clients through their legal matters in the most time-efficient and cost-effective way possible.

What do you enjoy most about working at Divorce In Colorado?

I enjoy the tribe we’re building to serve others. With friendships and working relationships extending from 42 years to 2 years, having such a fantastic work “family” makes helping others through an often difficult time more manageable.

What do you believe to be the most important skill in your work?

As a business owner, my ability to lead and mentor is most important. Our tribe has a clear understanding of our mission to serve others and how we can best help our clients in the most cost-effective and time-efficient way possible.

As the attorney & mediator, my communication skills are the most important. Knowing how to speak with clients and opposing parties can make difficult conversations more accessible, progress faster, and more comprehensive agreements better.

What is the best advice you can give someone getting Divorced?

Get out together – then move on. When you cannot separate the emotional toll of divorce from the logistics of dividing assets and debts and determining a parenting plan that is best for the children, you will save money and time and come out of the divorce with better agreements, finality, and closure. Get In ~ Get Out ~ Get Over It.
