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.

  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
  • Wendy and her staff were a delight to work with. During this difficult process I felt confident that the outcome would be fair and balanced, as it did. Very supportive, always well prepared and very knowledgeable. Would choose them all over again!
