Before a couple gets married, they can draft a contract that outlines what will happen to their finances and property in the event of divorce. This contract is called a pre-nuptial agreement, and having one can make the process of divorce much easier to resolve. Even though laws regarding pre-nuptial agreements vary by state, most courts require this agreement to be in writing and signed by both parties.

If you are considering signing a pre-nuptial agreement, it’s important to understand how this document will be applied in the event of divorce. This video explains how a judge will examine the validity of your pre-nuptial contract. Because many personal and financial issues are at stake, you should always consult with an attorney before signing this document.
