Utah Prenuptial Agreement Attorney
Utah Prenup Laws
In order for a premarital agreement to be enforceable under Utah law, it must meet certain requirements. Those requirements are set forth in Utah law and are very specific. If the laws are not followed exactly a court can overturn the agreement and rule that it is void and unenforceable. If you are considering entering into a prenuptial agreement you will want to make sure to hire attorneys who have as much experience as Salcido Law Firm in drafting such agreements. You should also be aware of the following laws relating to prenuptial agreements in Utah:
- A premarital agreement must be in writing and must be signed by both parties.
- A premarital agreement becomes effective upon marriage.
- After the parties are married, a premarital agreement may be amended or revoked only by a written agreement signed by the parties.
- It must be voluntary.
- There must be a reasonable disclosure of the property or financial obligations of the other party.
- If a provision of a premarital agreement modifies or eliminates spousal support and that modification or elimination causes one party to the agreement to be eligible for support under a program of public assistance at the time of separation or marital dissolution, a court, notwithstanding the terms of the agreement, may require the other party to provide support to the extent necessary to avoid that eligibility.
