Prenuptial agreements set out the rights of 2 parties during a relationship – whether it’s living together or a marriage – and establish what will happen if the relationship ends.
Prenuptial agreements can deal with property and support issues, but not the right to custody or access to children. These are the rights of the children and cannot be bargained away by their parents. These agreements deal with financial issues such as how money will be managed during the relationship and how assets will be divided in the event of separation or divorce. At the Peter D. Eberlie Family Law Practice, we understand that these contracts can be sensitive in nature, and we will work closely with you to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that the final result is an agreement that protects your interests and rights.
While prenuptial agreements, also known as marriage contracts, can be effective, they can also be set aside by a Court in certain circumstances such as lack of financial disclosure or duress.
In addition to equalization, other issues such as spousal support and child support may be addressed in a Prenuptial agreement.
