Uniform Premarital Agreement Act

Primary tabs

Uniform Premarital Agreement Act is a multistate law enacted to enforce consistency in prenuptial agreements from state to state. Based on the applicable laws of that state, not only does the Act allow the relevant parties to choose a particular state for their prenuptial agreements, but the Act also addresses major legal issues pertaining to marriage such as spousal support, division of property and child custody. The Act treats postnuptial agreements and premarital agreements equally with respect to their requirements and principles.
