What is a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement or contract created by a couple before they are married. This legal document lists the property owned by each person and spells out how the property will be divided if the marriage ends in divorce. Also called a “prenup,” “antenuptial agreement,” or even “prenuptial contract,” this document can be used to protect specific assets or income from division if there is a divorce.
