This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. This is a straightforward Prenuptial Agreement that deals with the assets and earnings of the parties, only. No provision is made for dealing with any issue, or children, emerging from the marriage.
Signing the agreement benefits both parties by providing clarity should the relationship dissolve. It benefits the party with more assets by clearly leaving the premarital assets in their hands. This is especially helpful for those people entering a marriage with a trust fund or other assets. The weaker financial party has less reason to sign the agreement.
