Prenuptial Agreement

Legal matters are complex.  Prenuptial agreements are very fact-specific.  If you have questions or concerns about your specific circumstances, it is strongly recommended that you speak with a qualified Thailand family law attorney.

What are prenuptial agreements?

Prenuptial agreements are agreements between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage to be effective upon marriage.

A prenup can protect the rights and obligations of both parties with respect to property. If one party owned a house before marriage, the prenup could include a provision stating that this spouse would be responsible for all costs associated with the maintenance of that property.

It can also protect the right to conduct any known transaction concerning property. The prenup could state that a spouse who owned a beach cottage would retain the sole right to sell or lease the property, but the other spouse had the right to use the house and live in it during the summer.

A prenuptial agreement can outline disposition of property if the marriage ends upon separation, death, or the occurrence of another event. A provision could state that if one spouse admits to cheating on the other, a cash payment of a certain amount is made to a certain bank account.

A prenup can also decide which jurisdiction’s law would be used to interpret the agreement and where any legal proceedings would be held.
