Posts tagged "Prenuptial agreement"

Would your prenuptial agreement hold up in court?

Most contractual agreements tend to be complex and matters surrounding contract disputes are often contentious. This is often especially true in disputes involving contracts made by two individuals prior to legally marrying. Prenuptial agreements are readily used by individuals that plan to marry who wish to protect and retain ownership of assets brought to a marriage. While the basic principles of a prenuptial agreement may seem simple enough, if not properly drawn up and executed, disputes over the validity of a prenup can result in a judge ruling to invalidate the agreement.

More couples signing social media-related prenuptial agreements

Thanks mainly to movies and media coverage, nearly everyone knows what a prenuptial agreement is. These agreements – signed before a couple weds – serve to prevent disputes in the event of a divorce. They typically involve such things as property division, allocation of premarital debts and spousal support. What is much less known, however, is that this type of agreement can be used to dictate "lifestyle" behaviors like religious preference of the couple's future children and where the couple will live.
