A prenuptial agreement is a contract specifying how a married couple’s assets and income will be divided in the event of a divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements are executed in contemplation and consideration of marriage to define the interests, rights, and obligations of prospective spouses.

Couples consider prenuptial agreements for a variety of reasons. Prenups can help to define the various financial rights and responsibilities relating to a couple’s then-owned and later acquired marital property and income. The very concept of negotiating a prenup can be emotionally overwhelming. Often individuals considering the need for prenuptial agreements are worried the negotiation process will cause irreparable damage to their relationship.
