Understanding Prenuptial Agreements in Tennessee
A prenuptial agreement, commonly known as a "prenup", is a legally binding contract entered into by a couple before they get married or enter into a civil partnership. This agreement outlines how their assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. In Tennessee, prenuptial agreements are recognized and enforceable under state law.
