A Maine prenuptial agreement is a contract that a couple may sign prior to marriage that states their legal rights during marriage, divorce, or after a spouse’s death. Most powers covered by a prenuptial agreement involve the control of property and finances. In accordance with § 606, prenuptial agreements become void within eighteen (18) months of the couple becoming guardians to a child unless the contract is amended in that period. Furthermore, an agreement may be ruled void if it is determined that the contract was unconscionable or that one party was unduly pressured to sign. A prenuptial agreement may only be amended or revoked by a written agreement that is signed by both parties.

Signing requirements (§ 603) – For the document to be valid, both parties must provide their signatures.
