What is a prenuptial agreement?
Although you may not want to start thinking of divorce before you even get married – getting a prenuptial agreement may save you a lot of time and effort in the future, which could be upsetting and painful, if the marriage happens to fail.
A prenuptial agreement, is a contract made before the marriage that outlines the terms for separation. It is very important to protect yourself, just in case, worst comes to worst, and you find yourself or your partner filing for divorce.
You can list nearly anything you want. For example, stating that you will try mediation if you decide to divorce. Even a settlement about pets can be included. But there are also limits and legally you cannot demand things like child support or predetermine child custody arrangements.
Arming yourself with accurate legal information from the outset can be vital in the resolution of your matter and can make the process less stressful.
