A prenuptial agreement or “prenup” is an agreement which parties enter into before marriage. This agreement details how assets will be divided in case of divorce. Naturally, people who get married believe that they will be married for the rest of their lives, however, this is often not the case. Prenuptial agreements have become a very common feature of modern day marriages and can avoid a costly dispute in case of divorce.
If you are asked to sign a prenuptial agreement, you may want to consult an attorney to make sure that your rights are adequately protected. Without proper guidance and expert advice from an attorney, it is possible for either party or both parties to run afoul of many important considerations and requirements. You should have your agreement reviewed by an attorney before signing anything.
If you are getting a divorce, and you have a prenup in place, you may be limited in your settlement options. However, the courts require that prenuptial agreements follow very specific guidelines. If the prenup was not drafted correctly, you may be able to challenge some of the provisions. You should consult an attorney if you think this might be the case.
