Divorce - Prenuptial Agreements
Updated: Mar 24
Prenuptial agreements are often beneficial to people who already have significant assets at the time they decide they want to get married. A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into before marriage designed primarily to address the financial components in the event of a divorce. Child support, parenting plans, and custody/time-sharing schedules are examples of things that cannot be determined by a prenuptial agreement.
Although prenuptial agreements can be, and are routinely challenged, having a properly drafted prenuptial agreement that complies with the law can reduce the litigation involved in a divorce. A poorly constructed prenuptial agreement that was entered into hastily and without consideration of the legal process required by prevailing case law can have disastrous results including the agreement being invalidated or set aside.
