A pre-nuptial agreement, which is created and signed prior to a wedding, delineates specific terms and conditions during a marriage.
It describes expected behavior in the event of emergency, separation, or divorce. Commonly, pre-nuptial agreements will outline separation of assets,
procedure in cases of infidelity or death, and distribution of debt. In simpler terms, this means that a pre-nuptial agreement can protect one partner
from becoming liable for another’s debt, can safeguard from losing property or inheritance in case of divorce (or consolidation in case of death), or can
restrict divorce settlements in case of infidelity.
To ensure that all of your wishes are included in the prenuptial agreement and that your agreement is in compliance with state law,
it is best to speak with an attorney before you sign anything with the other party.
