Prenuptial agreements

New Jersey has a strong public policy in enforcing agreements between parties, and this includes those made in contemplation of marriage, such as prenuptial agreements. Prenuptial agreements or “Pre-nups” are contracts, and drafting one requires a keen understanding of a party’s goals. Pre-nups are enforceable so long as there has been full disclosure between the parties and the terms are not “unconscionable.” The Uniform Premarital and Pre-Civil Union Agreement Act, N.J.S.A 37:2-38 governs pre-nups in New Jersey. There are very specific rules about such agreements to make them enforceable should your marriage end. Consult the Law Offices of Sadaf Trimarchi for a free consultation about pre-nups and how to make sure yours will stand the test of time.
