A prenuptial agreement, also referred to as a separation agreement or partnership agreement, is a type of contract both parties enter into before marriage. It is an agreement between the parties that generally contains information regarding what will happen in the event of divorce. A typical prenup can contain stipulations on how to divide property, assets and debt, alimony, child custody and so on. It may also contain clauses regarding payment and asset distribution, especially if one party has been unfaithful or if an instance of domestic violence has occurred.
