Prenuptial Agreements

Contact our Lawyers

A prenuptial agreement, or prenup, is a legal contract prepared for and signed by a couple before marriage. It designates the division of assets and entitlements in case of divorce or death of a spouse. 

Despite the negative connotations associated with prenups, they are immensely useful when it comes to protecting the couple and their children, if any. In addition to the rights of each of the spouses, a well-drafted prenup sets out settlements involving inheritance, in the event of a sudden death. It also separates personal debts from joint debts, post-marriage. A difficult to quantify benefit of a prenup is; that it alleviates emotional distress in difficult times. Having a prenup shortens the length of legal proceedings that follow on from a separation or death. A prenup negates a number of default legal implications of marriage, as such, a prenup should be always be viewed in a positive light.
