Prenuptial agreement guidelines

If you have considerable assets or otherwise worry about what could happen to your finances and real property holdings if your marriage does not last, then a prenuptial agreement can be a good idea. It can also just serve as a peace of mind, setting up conditions for support should a marriage end. Kentucky sets some specific laws regarding this type of legal document. At Prince Law Group LLC, we can help you to put together an agreement, but it does help to know the guidelines before you get started.

According to the Connecticut General Assembly, a prenuptial agreement must be in written form. You and your soon-to-be spouse must both also sign it. The agreement can cover a range of information pertaining to obligations and rights. Such things may include spousal support stipulations, rights to property and rights to retirement plans. The agreement cannot conflict with any law, which includes child support. Typically, the agreement will become valid on the day you get married, but you can specify a different date if you want to. It can also be modified or even revoked if you and your spouse sign an agreement to that effect.

In order for an agreement to be valid, it needs to meet the guidelines outlined above. In addition, it is important that you and your spouse disclose all information about the property you own, including its value. If this is not done, then the agreement could be deemed invalid by the courts due to withholding of information.
