Questions & Answers: Prenuptial Agreements

What is a prenup?

A prenup is a binding legal agreement. It is intended to preemptively address issues that may become contentious if the marriage ends.

Are prenups only for rich people?

No! You can never be too prepared for your future. If you or your future spouse are carrying significant student loan debt, own a home or business, or have a child from a previous relationship, a prenup can help you feel more secure and prepared for whatever the future holds.

What can be covered in a premarital agreement?

No two prenups are alike. When you work with a prenuptial agreement attorney at Holtey Law, we’ll review your individual needs and draft a prenup that works for you. Your agreement might cover:

  • Property ownership – Clearly delineating property being brought into the marriage by both parties
  • Day-to-day practicalities – Who owns vehicles, whether bank accounts will be jointly held, etc.
  • Spousal support – In the event the marriage ends what support will be provided
  • Property distribution – What will happen to individually owned or jointly held property if the marriage ends

Prenuptial Agreement Terms to Know

  • Operative/Separation Event or Termination – Divorce, separation or another event that triggers the prenup
  • Marital property – Property earned or acquired after the marriage
  • Separate property – The property one party brings to the marriage
  • Sunset clause – A clause in the prenup that sets an expiration date or otherwise changes terms
