Many who are planning to get married seek to give themselves a layer of protection with a premarital agreement. There is often a perception that these agreements are limited to those who have significant assets, but anyone can have a premarital agreement, if they choose to. The document itself comes to the forefront when the couple decides to divorce. Whether it is a high asset divorce or a divorce of more modest means, a premarital agreement can add to the complexity of the case. Understanding what the law says about these agreements, what can be in them and when they are unenforceable is critical for both sides.
