What is a prenup

What to include in your pre-nuptial agreement

A prenup is a contract between two individuals that specifies the liabilities and assets they bring to the marriage. It also determines your property rights should your marriage end in a divorce.

Some of the items to include in your pre-nuptial agreement are:

  • Saving and spending strategies
  • Financial obligations during the marriage
  • Separate and marital property
  • Property distribution in a divorce proceeding
  • Debt liability
  • Alimony
  • Family property and estate plans

Since prenup laws differ from state to state, it’s wise to hire a family attorney to help you draft your pre-nuptial agreement. Contact Granholm & Gynac today to consult with a family attorney.
