What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a written contract between two people before they marry that will take effect when they marry. This agreement determines how financial matters will be settled in case of divorce, separation, or death.

A premarital agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. It might include instructions for:

  • How real estate will be divided
  • Responsibilities for debts built up during the marriage
  • Determining what if any separate property is involved and how it should be held and titled
  • Deciding what joint and separate living expenses there might be and how they will be paid
  • Determining who has the right to retirement assets
  • Alimony
  • Determining rights to life insurance benefits
  • Wills and trusts
