What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

Today we will talk about the prenuptial agreement.

Malaysians are very vague about the prenuptial agreement, even “pantang”. Many people will say: “Oh, it is not very good to talk about divorce before getting married. “In Western culture, it is very common to sign pre-nuptial agreements concerning property, custody of children after divorce and other issues before marriage. After all, no one wants things to go sour when they are separated and eventually become enemies. Of course, to sign such an agreement naturally is not a romantic thing. Before getting married, most couple don’t think of it at all and think it’s too emotional. The divorce rate in the whole society is on the rise. If we can reach an agreement on the disposal of property in advance, obviously it can simplify procedures and save all parties’ manpower, material and financial resources

What is a prenuptial agreement?

Now many couples will sign a prenuptial agreement before getting married to protect their property rights and other aspects. Specifically, a prenuptial agreement includes the basic personal information of the couple, the property status of both parties, and the agreement made, etc., and the name can be signed under the witness of the lawyer.

Why do I need a prenuptial agreement?

As a lawyer specializing in divorce lawsuits, I have seen many couples who want to divorce, but they cannot do so because they cannot reach a consensus. Why can’t we reach a consensus?

Does signing a prenuptial agreement mean that your other partner wants to divorce with you in the future?

In fact, the divorce agreement just makes it easier to resolve future marriage problems. If a person really loves you, he will not cause problems in marriage, and he will give you protection after divorce because he loves you.
