What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement, often called a "prenup," is a legal document that outlines the financial and property rights of each spouse or partner in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. While prenups are commonly associated with high-net-worth individuals, they can benefit couples from all walks of life. These agreements are designed to provide clarity and certainty, addressing potential issues before they arise and safeguarding the interests of both parties.

What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Cover?

The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary based on the couple's specific circumstances and desires, but typically it covers the following:

  • Asset Division: Prenups commonly outline how assets, such as property, investments, and businesses, will be divided in case of divorce or separation. This can help protect assets one or both parties bring into the marriage.
  • Debt Allocation: The agreement may address how debts, such as loans and credit card debt, will be divided between spouses in case of a breakup.
  • Spousal Support (Alimony): Prenups can specify whether one spouse will pay alimony (financial support) to the other and the terms under which it will be provided. This can help avoid disputes over spousal support in the future.
  • Inheritance and Gifts: The agreement may establish how inheritances and gifts received during the marriage will be treated, whether they remain with the receiving spouse or are subject to division.
  • Property Ownership: Prenups can determine how property acquired during the marriage will be owned and divided. This can include real estate, vehicles, and other valuable items.
  • Marital Responsibilities: Some prenuptial agreements include clauses about how specific marital responsibilities and decisions will be handled during the marriage, such as financial management, child-rearing, and career choices.
  • Protecting Family Assets: Prenups can help protect family assets intended for future generations. They can clarify that certain assets remain within the family in the event of divorce.
  • Estate Planning: The agreement might include provisions related to estate planning, specifying how assets will be distributed upon the death of one spouse.
  • Legal Procedures: Prenups often include details about the legal procedures that will be followed in the event of divorce or separation, such as which jurisdiction's laws will apply.

It's important to note that prenuptial agreements cannot address matters related to child custody and child support, as these issues are typically determined based on the child's best interests at the time of separation or divorce.
