What to Consider About Prenuptial Agreements in Worthington, Ohio

We will make sure that the language used in your agreement is concise and clear.

Who Can Get a Prenuptial Agreement?

Contrary to popular belief, prenuptial agreements are not just for those with a high net worth. Any engaged couple wanting to prepare for the future can decide to create a prenuptial agreement, which will assist both parties in the event of a divorce. Every state has its own requirements for prenuptial agreements, however, and Ohio is no different in this respect.

Your agreement must meet the following conditions in order to get a prenup in Ohio:

The terms of the agreement do not encourage divorce;

Both parties are freely entering into the agreement without fraud or coercion; and

All owned properties have been accurately and clearly stated.
