A prenuptial agreement is signed by a bride-to-be and groom-to-be prior to marriage to define each party’s rights and settle questions of property division and other financial matters in the event that marriage ends in death, separation or divorce. A prenuptial “agreement simply allows the [marrying] couple to follow their own rules, in as much detail as they wish.”
Prenuptial agreements were once used primarily by the wealthy or high-income earners. Today, prenuptial agreements appeal to a wider variety of people, including: property or business owners, professionals, people with children from a former marriage and people marrying later in life. Having a prenuptial agreement can help a couple avoid litigation costs, protect family and business assets, dispose of property and provide some protection against creditors.
