If you have decided that a prenuptial agreement is right for you, it is important to understand what is and isn’t permissible in the agreement. Although these agreements can provide a great deal of flexibility in their construction, there are some rules about what can’t be included. Here are some pros and cons of prenuptial agreements.
What prenups can generally address:
Prenups generally can’t address:
- Custody and visitation of minor children.
- Child support.
- Anything that is illegal or would be considered unconscionable.
- Anything that is deemed to encourage or trigger the divorce.
Remember, courts have the ability to review and make decisions related to prenuptial agreements. Thus, it is important to seek out an experienced family lawyer when considering a prenup.
