As the wedding date gets closer on the calendar, there is a mix of nervousness and excitement in the air. Before the wedding, things can become a hassle with all the planning and arrangements. One thing you might want to consider or are considering is a prenuptial agreement, but do not know where to start.

Experts at Family Lawyers NSW are here to help you out. It should be noted that this is a realistic and pragmatic approach despite most of the soap operas showing prenuptial agreement as a sign of dying love.

Things To Know About Prenuptial Agreement

  3.     It should be signed by both partners, and a copy should be with each partner as well.
