What You Can Do with a Prenuptial Agreement

I thought a brief outline of what goes into a prenuptial agreement might be of use. For more specific articles, please click on "prenuptial agreements" below next to label. If you are an Indiana resident and want an attorney to help you with a prenuptial agreement, please feel free to contact me.

Determine your rights to (what goes in):

(A) buy;
(B) sell;
(C) use;
(D) exchange;
(E) abandon;
(F) lease;
(G) consume;
(H) expend;
(I) assign;
(J) create a security interest in;
(K) mortgage;
(L) encumber;
(M) dispose of; or
(N) otherwise manage and control;


The modification or elimination of spousal maintenance.

The ownership rights in and disposition of a death benefit from a life insurance policy.
The disposition of property upon:
(A) legal separation;
(B) dissolution of marriage;
(C) death; or
(D) the occurrence or nonoccurrence of any other event.

The making of:
(A) a will;
(B) a trust; or
(C) other arrangement;
to carry out the provisions of the agreement.
The choice of law governing the construction of the agreement.
However, a premarital agreement may not adversely affect the right of a child to support.
