Pondering a Prenup

What is a premarital agreement?

A premarital agreement (often called a prenuptial agreement or prenup) is a contract between two people who plan to marry. It defines their property rights when their marriage ends by death or divorce and may address other issues, such as spousal support, payment of expenses during the marriage, and titling of assets. However, a premarital agreement cannot predetermine the custody of or support for a child if the marriage breaks up.
