Prenuptial or Premarital Agreements are legal documents designed to protect an individual’s assets/income and to pre-determine how various issues should be handled in the event of a divorce and in the event of the death of a spouse. Some topics that can be included in these agreements are division of personal property, family trusts, income property, debts and real property; spousal support; inherited assets; business interests and more.
