Prenuptial Agreements

Although prenuptial agreements are not generally considered a romantic gesture, divorce is common and divorce litigation is often expensive.  A prenuptial agreement is one way to minimize your financial risk.

 

A prenuptial agreement is a contractual agreement that details how property division will occur in the event of a divorce.  A prenuptial agreement may pertain to any matter that is not in violation of public policy or a statute imposing a criminal penalty.  Additionally, a prenuptial agreement may not affect the legal rights of a child, such as a child’s right to child support.

 

Who should consider executing a prenuptial agreement?

 

  • You, or your partner, have been previously married;

  • You have a significant amount of assets that you will bring into the marriage;

  • You own your own business;

  • Your income is substantially higher than your partner’s income;

  • Your partner has a significant amount of debt; or

  • You, or your partner, have children from a previous relationship.

 

In order for a prenuptial agreement to be legally enforceable, specific legal procedures must be followed.

 

A prenuptial agreement may not be legally enforceable at the time of divorce for any of the following reasons:

 

  • The prenuptial agreement was not freely entered into by you or your spouse;

  • The prenuptial agreement was unjust or inequitable; or

  • The prenuptial agreement was attained by fraud.
