Do You Need a Prenuptial Agreement?
Will a Prenup Stand in Divorce Proceedings?
The quality of prenuptial agreements can vary depending on how they were drafted, what was stipulated and if both parties knew what was being agreed upon at the time the prenup was signed. Tennessee law has certain requirements for prenups, and yours will have to meet these requirements if it is to protect your rights.
Making a prenup immune to attacks can be difficult. A substantial change of circumstances could convince a judge that certain parts or your prenup is invalid. An effective prenup must be drafted by an attorney who has a thorough understanding of all applicable laws, possible arguments and potential threats to the agreement.
