Experienced, Results-Oriented, Family Law Lawyers Representing Clients During the Negotiation, Drafting and Enforcement of Marriage Contracts
A marriage contract (sometimes referred to as a prenuptial agreement or ‘prenup’) is a good idea for couples who want to outline – in advance – what will happen to each partner’s assets and finances if a marriage should unfortunately break down. Marriage contracts can be entered into, and are legally enforceable, for both same sex marriages and opposite-sex marriages. Unmarried individuals have the option of drawing up a similar agreement, often referred to as a cohabitation agreement.
What is Included in Marriage Contract?
Typically, a marriage contract is drawn up by a family law lawyer in advance of a marriage, and outlines an agreement on matters such as:
- property brought into the marriage;
- division of property upon separation;
- asset distribution in case of death; and
- spousal support.
