What Do Prenuptial Agreements Cover?

These agreements may contain a wide range of provisions. Terms in these contracts may outline the division of debt if the couple divorces, who may pay spousal support and, how much, and how assets obtained prior to or during the marriage could be split.

Other common provisions a couple may try to include in their prenup agreement are those that concern child support and custody However, state law does not permit these provisions to necessarily be upheld as it is a judge who has the final say on these matters regardless of what may be in the prenuptial agreement about them. While a couple may include a proposed plan for child custody and support in the event of divorce, if a judge believes that these terms are not in the best interest of the child, they may not approve that part of the contract. Our attorneys can help a couple prepare a prenup agreement that is tailored to their specific needs while following all legal guidelines.

Preparing an Enforceable Prenup

If a couple divorces, the judge may look at several components to determine the enforceability of a couple’s prenuptial agreement. For instance, the contract must not have been signed because of coercion or force on the part of either spouse. If one spouse unjustly compelled the other to sign the document, this could invalidate the agreement or at least a portion of it. If a prenuptial agreement is drafted in the right way, it would be hard for someone to win this type of argument.

Additionally, a prenuptial agreement should be drawn up so that it can be found fair for both partners at the time that there is a request for it to be enforceable. To make this determination, a court may evaluate the events leading up to the enactment of the prenuptial agreement as well as examine if there has been a significant change of circumstances from the time it was executed to the time it is being acted upon that would render it unfair and unconscionable at either of those two points of time.
