Overview

Marriage is one of the few personal contracts in which your state dictates the terms—unless you create your own customized premarital agreement.

Combining Nolo's legal expertise and plain-English writing, Prenuptial Agreements makes a potentially touchy subject easy to deal with while explaining how to create a valid contract. This easy-to-use book covers:

  • whether a prenup is right for your relationship
  • how to decide what a prenup should include
  • how to deal with special situations, such as one spouse’s debts, business ownership, or kids from a previous marriage
  • how to assemble a draft agreement
  • how to turn your draft into a contract
  • tips on negotiating and communicating


This edition of Prenuptial Agreements is completely revised and updated to reflect current state laws, plus worksheets and clauses for preparing an agreement that suits your unique needs.
