A pre-nuptial agreement is an agreement made before marriage, usually to resolve issues of support and property division if the marriage ends in divorce or death by a spouse. A pre-nuptial agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. The agreement shall be enforceable without consideration and becomes effective upon marriage.

There are three criteria in determining if a contested pre-nuptial is enforceable;

  1. whether the agreement was obtained through fraud, duress or mistake, or through misrepresentation or nondisclosure or material facts;
  2. whether the agreement is unconscionable; and
  3. whether the facts and circumstances changed since the agreement was executed, so as to make its enforcement unfair and unreasonable.

A postnuptial agreement is an agreement entered into during the marriage at which time when separation or divorce is non-imminent.
