Many couples who have significant assets seek pre-nuptial agreements to define and protect the rights and interests of both parties. These agreements are entered into and signed before the date of marriage. A pre-nuptial agreement outlines the property rights and, if applicable, spousal support should separation occur between the spouses. A well-drafted pre-nuptial agreement serves to protect each spouse’s assets, avoid costly disputes in the event of a divorce, define marital and separate property, protect the interests of children from a previous marriage, and define future alimony, maintenance payments and obligations.
