NEBRASKA PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Prenuptial agreements are contracts created by couples who want to determine how their assets will be divided if they ever get divorced. Prenuptial agreements are executed before marriage. Due to the complexity of legal issues involved in drafting these types of agreements, each person should have their own qualified attorney represent them prior to signing the contract. Having an experienced divorce attorney work with you during this process also ensures that any prenuptial agreements are legally valid and won’t adversely affect you.
PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT Laws
When couples do not have prenuptial agreements in place, they are subject to Nebraska laws in terms of how their personal assets are allocated and who will receive property accumulated during the marriage. Some couples prefer to take the power into their own hands and want to be the ones who decide what happens to their assets in case a divorce happens. Usually, when the individuals each have an experienced attorney looking out for their interests, they are able to reach an agreement that is beneficial and fair to both people.
TOPICS COVERED IN PRENUPTIAL
The information included in prenuptial agreements can cover a wide range of topics and explicitly state the intent of both spouses.

- Each spouse’s property rights
