No one accurately can predict the future. Covering your legal bases on all fronts is a wise course of action to take. This includes making a prenuptial agreement in advance of getting married to protect your assets, rights and interests. There are certain elements that are included in a prenuptial agreement to ensure that the contract is legally binding.
Disclose all assets to your future spouse. The failure to dispose assets properly will result in the defeat of a prenuptial agreement at a future date if it is challenged.
Obtain information from your spouse about all of his assets.
Put into writing the provisions of your mutual prenuptial agreement. Absent a written contract, a prenuptial agreement does not exist legally.
Sign the completed written agreement in front of a notary public. Your intended should sign the agreement at the same time and in front of the same notary. If the agreement is not notarized, it will not be enforceable.
