Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is also known as premarital or ante-nuptial agreement.  Basically it is a contract between two people that is entered into before they get married.  The contract specifies how property, debts, and assets are divided if the parties divorce, die, or separate.  In Massachusetts each party must provide full financial disclosure to the other party and both parties must have legal representation of an attorney in order for the agreement to be enforceable. Also, stipulations in the agreement must be congruent with the laws of Massachusetts and the terms of the agreement must be fair at the time of the drafting of the agreement and at the time of divorce.
