Prenuptial agreements, also commonly referred to as pre-marital or antenuptial agreements, are strictly controlled by Minnesota statutes and case law. These agreements are contracts that are entered before a marriage and commonly include provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce or breakup of the marriage. A postnuptial agreement provides the same protection but is entered into after a marriage. While the content of marital agreements can vary widely, most determine the rights of the parties to property, responsibility for debt, and may determine whether spousal maintenance is paid.
More and more couples are signing prenuptial marriage agreements. The spouses are not just couples dealing with financial inequality or couples of great wealth. They are couples who want to put all their financial cards and related issues on the table before they walk down the aisle, often to avoid great expense and prolonged painful litigation should the marriage fail. A prenuptial agreement is especially important in second and third marriages, when a person wants to protect assets for his or her children from a prior marriage.
