Prenuptial Agreements are contracts entered into prior to marriage that commonly contain provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce. While prenuptial agreements are recognized by courts, they may not always be enforced. Both parties should have attorneys represent them to ensure that the agreement is appropriate and enforceable.
