What Is the Purpose of a Pre-Nuptial Agreement?
Pre-nuptial agreements may be used to force the parties to communicate directly and clearly about their expectations during and after the marriage and may even teach the parties how to effectively communicate with each other to avoid a divorce. The agreement can anticipate issues with regard to property and assets that the parties brought into the marriage and may subsequently acquire during the course of the marriage.
A prenuptial agreement, however, cannot waive or limit a party’s right to child support or custody. Such agreements should outline specifically how alimony, division of assets, and other issues will be addressed in the event that the parties obtain a divorce.
A pre-nuptial agreement can be used for the following purposes:
How marital property shall be divided and identify what property is considered separate property.
Whether alimony will be paid, and, if it is paid, the amount and duration.
