What Prenuptial Agreements Do
Prenuptial agreements are designed to designate how property, assets, and debts are to be addressed if the marriage ends. They can also make provisions for alimony. These contracts can designate property as marital or separate to protect each spouse’s rights.
In order to be valid, a prenuptial agreement must:
- Be written
- Not violate public policy or criminal law
- Have been created after full disclosure of all property, assets, and debts by both parties
- Not have been signed under coercion
- Not be fraudulent

Utah law gives married couples the right to enter into a postnuptial agreement as a written contract.

Postnuptial agreements are post-marital, meaning they are created after the couple has already gotten married.
If you are interested in drafting a post-marital agreement, it is best to work with a legal professional who can ensure that your agreement is created according to Utah law and thus will stand up in court. At Sentinel Law Group, P.C., our Ogden postnuptial agreement lawyers have the knowledge and skills needed to help you craft a lawful contract that will meet your unique needs and goals.

What Does A Postnuptial Agreement Do?
Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements in their purpose. These agreements can be simple or complex depending on your unique circumstances and needs. Postnuptial agreements can help protect your rights and assets should the marriage dissolve.
Examples of provisions in a postnuptial agreement include:
- Rights to alimony and the duration of alimony
- The division of marital property and assets
- The division of marital debts and how they are to be paid
- How property or assets will be passed along to children or other beneficiaries
- How and to whom death benefits will be paid
These types of agreements are especially pertinent to couples who have formed blended families and who wish to preserve specific inheritances for children from previous relationships. They are helpful in cases where one party may be bringing significantly more property or assets into the marriage than the other, or where one party already has his or her own business. Such agreements can also protect a spouse from the other’s debt.
