Nuptial Agreements

Our attorneys are experienced in negotiating the terms of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and providing advice as to what types of agreements will withstand court review.


In many cases, when there is significant wealth on either or both sides, the agreement can create greater peace of mind and reduce misunderstanding between spouses, especially when there are children involved. Both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are recognized in New Mexico. However, specific and precise requirements must be met for the agreement to be enforced.

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. It can address what happens in the event of a death or a divorce. The agreement may also outline the manner in which the parties will handle their finances during the marriage.

Entering into a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement does not mean that divorce is inevitable.

The attorneys at Batley Family Law are experienced in negotiating the terms of a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement so that it will withstand court review. Our legal team has represented a wide range of individuals, including professional athletes, celebrities, and business leaders.
