The Benefits Of Nuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements allow couples to identify and protect their assets by making provisions for support and the division of property in case of death or the termination of their marriage.
If you are contemplating marriage or remarriage, you may want to consider entering into a nuptial agreement. The attorneys at Oney + Kim Family Law, PLLC, can assist in negotiating and drafting the agreement or provide dependable advice regarding the requirements under Minnesota law to ensure that the agreement is valid and enforceable.
An Agreement Tailored To You And Your Spouse
Nuptial agreements are highly customizable. Couples may structure their financial and personal affairs to suit their own needs and values. An enforceable nuptial agreement requires couples to fully disclose earnings and property. The terms and formation of the agreement must be fair and equitable to both parties.
Prenuptial/postnuptial agreements may include terms relating to:
- The rights and obligations of each of party regarding any of the property of either or both whenever and wherever acquired or located
- The right to buy, sell, use, transfer, exchange, abandon, lease, consume, expend, assign, create a security interest in, mortgage, encumber, dispose of, otherwise manage and control property
- The disposition of property upon separation, divorce, death or the occurrence or nonoccurrence of any other event
- The making of a will, trust or another arrangement to carry out the provisions of the agreement
- The ownership rights in and disposition of the death benefits from a life insurance policy
- The choice of law governing the construction of the agreement
- Any other matter, including the personal rights and obligations of the parties, not in violation of public policy or a statute imposing a criminal penalty
