Prenuptial Agreements Information
A prenuptial agreement (also known as an antenuptial agreement, premarital agreement, prenup or prenupt) is a contract entered into prior to marriage. The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary greatly depending on people's desires, assets and liabilities, but usually includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce.
The basic New York requirements of for a valid prenuptial agreement are:
1. Agreement must be in writing (oral prenups are always prohibited);
2. Must be executed voluntarily;
3. Full and fair disclosure at the time of execution;
4. The agreement cannot be unconscionable (grossly unfair);
5. It must be signed before a notary public.
A prenuptial agreement will protect:
- Assets such as a home, real estate investments stock or retirement funds;
- Gifts, inheritance and any property you may come to own in the future;
- Business and professional practice;
- The value of academic or professional degree (some people who get a degree during marriage are forced to pay part of its value to the spouse during divorce);
- Any future increases in income.
- Almost any other property you may have.
Prenuptial agreements in all U.S. states are not allowed to regulate issues relating to the children of the marriage, in particular, custody and access issues because it must be decided based on the "child's best interests." A prenuptial agreement is not a sign that the couple does not trust each other and does not believe in the marriage. Just as business formation contracts include clauses in case the partnership dissolves, so too should people entering into a life partnership be prepared for all possibilities. Not only can it help in case of a divorce, but a prenup can even help resolve many issues that may arise in a successful marriage. Discussing these issues prior to marriage may actually prevent a divorce!
