Pre-Nuptial Agreements

A Practical Legal Guide

Start your new life with clarity and certainty.

If you want to predetermine the division of assets and liabilities between you and your spouse before your marriage, you may want to consider a pre-nuptial agreement.

A pre-nuptial agreement sets out a mutual understanding, based on the information that is currently available to you, of how you will divide your property in the event of a separation and divorce after marriage. A pre-nuptial agreement can contemplate both currently owned separated and joint property, and also consider how you and your fiancé plan to divide future-acquired property.

It is also possible to set out your current expectations with respect to spousal support in the event that you separate, though it is important to realize that there may be unforeseen circumstances that will impact the enforceability of such an agreement.

The certainty that a pre-nuptial agreement brings, especially with respect to property, can save you thousands in legal fees in the event that you do separate from your spouse after marriage.
