What Cannot Be Included In A Prenuptial Agreement?
Prenuptial agreements are commonly thought of as agreements that deal with financial obligations and other issues. Prenups can set forth the terms between prospective spouses, including estate planning, property designation and distribution, and children's education.
The prenuptial agreement cannot contain provisions that do not comply with Oregon law. Because it is a legal contract, the terms must follow state contract laws, including the capacity to contract, being in writing, and agreement of both parties. The prenup must also comply with the state domestic relations statutes. After the parties sign the prenup, it goes into effect upon marriage.
