Agreements Can Address Many Aspects of Marriage

Prenuptial agreements are agreements that outline how property or other aspects of a marriage will be handled in the event of divorce. They are increasing in popularity among couples who see the agreements as a way to protect themselves and their significant assets rather than as a sign their marriage may not be successful.

These agreements can address nearly any aspect of a marriage. A client who owns a house before marriage may want to protect that property. A business owner may want to protect the company from a financial hit due to divorce. Alimony — either waiving alimony or guaranteeing certain support — may be agreed upon. In fact, child-related matters are nearly the only major aspect of marriage that cannot be limited or dictated in a prenuptial agreement.

Numerous legal requirements must be met to prevent a prenup from being deemed unenforceable. Among them, you and your potential spouse need to create an agreement and have it drafted well in advance of your wedding. There must also be full and fair disclosure.
