Question: Under what circumstances should a couple getting married do a prenuptial agreement?
Answer: Hawaii law recognizes prenuptial agreements. A prenuptial agreement is basically an agreement by the parties as to how the couple’s assets and debts would be divided in the event of a divorce. Any couple getting married should consider entering into a prenuptial agreement if they want to minimize, and hopefully eliminate, any disputes regarding the division of their property and debts in the event of a divorce. A prenup should be seriously considered if either or both of them own significant assets at the time of marriage or have an expectation of receiving significant family inheritances or gifts from family members after their marriage.
