Premarital Agreements

A premarital agreement (also known as a prenuptial agreement or pre-nup) is a contract that spouses enter into before their wedding. The agreement outlines how assets and debts will be divided in the event the couple gets divorced, and whether one person will receive spousal support (alimony or palimony). Antenuptial agreements, which are similar but less common, are created after a couple has married. The details of a prenuptial agreement can vary from couple to couple, which is why it's important to work with family law attorneys or premarital agreement lawyers when drafting such an agreement. (Under legal ethics rules, each spouse must be represented by a different lawyer or law firm.)
