Prenuptial agreements, or "prenups", are private agreements between individuals planning to marry that set forth the division of their property in the event of death or divorce.
Prenuptial agreements can define separate and marital property, address spousal support/alimony, protect business assets, clarify expectations regarding inheritance, and set forth intentions related to cryopreserved genetic material.
The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reports prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common among Gen Z and Millennials who are choosing marriage and family formation later than their parents and grandparents.
Prenuptial agreements should be uniquely tailored to each couple. There is no one-size-fits-all.
