How Can a Prenuptial Agreement Help Me During a Divorce?
A prenuptial agreement (prenup) is a legal contract between two people who are about to get married. The prenup states what property each person keeps if the marriage ends in divorce or the death of one spouse. Couples getting married can benefit greatly from creating a prenuptial agreement because it outlines how their property and debt are divided in case something happens in the future, as well as sets stipulations for spousal maintenance/support.
