The Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial or "premarital agreement" is a written agreement that a couple enters to prior to getting married.

What issues are addressed in a prenuptial agreement? In the state of New Jersey the following issues may be addressed in a properly drafted prenuptial agreement:

- Life insurance; and
- Any other relevant rights and obligations of either party in the event of a divorce or death.
Would a prenuptial agreement benefit you?
Although a prenuptial agreement may seem unromantic, it has many important uses. A prenuptial agreement has a variety of different functions. It can protect the assets of one or both parties, it can ensure that assets are passed down to children from a future marriage or relationship and it can prevent serious issues from ever occurring in the event of a divorce. The one thing that a prenuptial agreement has no control over in New Jersey are issues relating to child custody, visitation and support.
