A pre-nuptial agreement, commonly abbreviated to prenup, is a contract entered into prior to marriage, civil union or any other agreement prior to the main agreement by the people intending to marry or enter a civil partnership.
The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce or breakup of marriage. A prenuptial agreement can protect each spouse’s premarital assets from a claim by the other spouse in the event of death or divorce. A prenup can also protect income and assets acquired during the marriage.
We recommend that you get advice from a family lawyer to help you consider whether a prenup may be appropriate in your circumstances.
