HOW IT WORKS
A prenuptial agreement ("prenup" for short) is a written contract created by two people before they are married. A prenup typically lists all of the property each person owns (as well as any debts) and specifies what each person's property rights will be after the marriage.
If you decide to not make a prenuptial agreement, your State's laws determine who owns the property that you acquire during your marriage, as well as what happens to that property at divorce or death. (Property acquired during your marriage is known as community property.) Nevada is a community property state; meaning that assets and debt earned or incurred during the marriage are the property and debt of both spouses.
An agreement made during the marriage, rather than before, is known as a "postnuptial," "postmarital," or "marital" agreement. - Contact us to learn more about this service.
WHAT IS INCLUDED
A premarital agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties, typically in the presence of a notary.
