Before the commencement of a marriage, some couples choose to sign what is a called a "pre-nuptial agreement". A pre-nuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that outlines what will happen if a couple decides to legally separate or file for
divorce. Usually, pre-nuptial agreements cover important issues like
child support, spousal support and also division of assets.
Usually, people decide to create a pre-nuptial agreement when they wish to protect their wealth, assets and property in the event of a divorce. However, this is not the sole reason for drafting a pre-nuptial agreement prior to marriage.
