What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two individuals planning to get married. It is best drawn up by a family law attorney experienced in a prenuptial agreement. It sets forth the rights of each spouse and property division in the case of a divorce. It can also address issues not outlined in a will if either spouse dies. A prenuptial agreement only becomes enforceable if the couple gets married. A qualified divorce attorney will help with the details of a prenuptial agreement.


Who Needs a Prenuptial Agreement?

Usually, individuals with significant assets execute a prenuptial agreement to separate their money and property. However, any person with a marriage in the future is encouraged to contact a family law attorney to discuss the benefits of a prenuptial agreement. Also, couples in a second or third marriage may use it to avoid another messy divorce. An experienced family law attorney can help you if you are considering a prenuptial agreement before your upcoming nuptials.

What Does a Prenuptial Agreement cover?

A Prenuptial Agreement can resolve any matter relating to the spouses’ property, alimony, assets, and debts. It may deal with some of the following issues:

  • each spouse’s rights to certain property owned individually or as a couple
  • the division of assets and debts in the event of divorce or death
  • the division of expenses during marriage
  • whether gifts and/or inheritances will be considered marital or separate property
  • whether either spouse is entitled to alimony in the event of divorce, and if so, how much and for how long
  • whether each spouse will receive death benefits from the other’s insurance policy
