Nebraska Prenuptial Agreement – Laws

The Nebraska prenuptial agreement is a legal agreement that is drafted and signed by a couple prior to marriage that becomes effective upon their legal union. In the document, both parties will state their assets and liabilities and describe the lawful powers and responsibilities that each party will have over said assets and liabilities, especially in the event of a divorce or a spouse’s death. In the event that either party signed the agreement unknowingly or under duress, or if the agreement’s terms are unreasonable, the contract may not hold up in court in the event of a divorce or legal dispute. Furthermore, if a marriage contract is considered void, the prenuptial agreement is also voided.

Signing requirements (§ 42-1003) – Both members of the couple are legally required to sign the document.
