Hawaii Prenuptial Agreement

Hawaii Prenuptial Agreement

Prenup Agreement Attorney in Honolulu

Most people do not enter a marriage thinking that it will end in divorce. However, as most people know, roughly half of all marriages do not “go the distance.” Whether you have considerable premarital assets, or want to protect certain future assets, inheritances, or trusts, a prenuptial, or pre-marital agreement may be worth considering.

A prenup agreement must comply with very specific requirements/guidelines for it to be enforceable. For example, the Hawaii Family Court will not enforce a prenuptial agreement if a spouse did not fully disclose all of his/her assets and/or debts, and the defrauded spouse could not have known about these undisclosed assets and/or debts. Also, in some cases, if a prenuptial agreement was signed just days before the parties’ wedding, it may appear that a spouse did not have enough time to review it with an attorney, or that the agreement was signed under duress. Finally, the Family Court may not enforce one or more of the provisions if it determines that they are extremely unfair.
