What is a prenuptial agreement in New Jersey?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that determines how a couple’s assets will be divided in the event that there is a divorce, separation, or death. Prenuptial agreements are commonly used when a family has an inheritance, business, or property that is passed down through generations. Parents in these circumstances will want to ensure that the assets remain within their family, rather than ending up with the former spouse of their child. Prenuptial agreements are not indicative of a future of divorce, but rather, serve the purpose of ensuring that both spouses feel financially protected.
