Requirements for a Colorado Prenup

We want prenup! Yeah, it’s something that you need to have. – Kanye West in “Gold Digger” (feat. Jamie Foxx)

Kanye West’s wedding to Kim Kardashian apparently was delayed because of negotiations over their prenup. Here in Colorado, a revision to the Pre-Marital and Marital Agreement Act will become effective in July. The below are the key components to a pre-marital (aka prenup) agreement.

  1. In writing and signed by both parties
  2. Voluntary (one party cannot force the other into the contract)
  3. Disclosure of assets and liabilities
  4. Cannot limit or waive child support
  5. May not violate public policy

In coming posts, we’ll talk about ways that a prenup can be attacked and the changes to Colorado’s new law that becomes effective in July.
