July 6, 2016 nodinx

Before marriage, people may sign an agreement that determines their rights and duties regarding their property and support obligations. The agreement becomes effective when the marriage takes place. It is enforceable if it does not violate public policy or the law. Both parties to a premarital agreement must fully understand the effect of the agreement, including the legal rights they may be giving up. You may wish to ask for the advice of a lawyer before signing a premarital agreement.
