Premarital agreements in Hawaii, also known as “Prenups” or pre-marital agreements, are approved under the Premarital Uniform Act (HUPAA) – Hawaii Revised Statutes Section 572D. These are essentially contracts between two people who wish to marry. Although prenups are contracts, they do not come into effect immediately with the signing of the parties. On the contrary, prenups take effect if the parties actually marry. If the parties do not marry at the end, the Prenup will not come into force. Scot Stuart Brower will develop the agreement you have chosen and introduce you and your spouse. We recommend that each of you have your own lawyer to ensure that you are treated fairly in this order. Once the document is signed and notarized, it acts as a legal contract between you. Pre-marriage agreements are sought for a number of reasons, depending on the wishes of the parties who marry.

A few examples are: marriage contracts are agreements between two people who are considering either marriage or being already married, setting the conditions/problems in advance if the parties were to be divorced at a later date. Pre-marriage agreements are generally referred to as pre-marital agreements (also known as marriage contracts). Marriages contracted after the parties are made available are referred to as shift or post-marriage labour agreements. A marriage agreement in Hawaii is a spousal contract between potential spouses that allows parties to discuss and define how they want to share their property, property, finances and debts after divorce (if any). The agreement will not come into force with the signature, but with the marriage. The Hawaii court will apply a marital agreement, provided both parties have signed the contract, and it is clear that the provisions set out in it are not unfairly unfair to a party. In most cases, a lawyer who enters into a pre-marital agreement represents only one of the couples and will recommend that the other party retain its own lawyer to represent them when reviewing the agreement. This is an important part of the pre-marriage agreement process. If both parties have a lawyer and the parties divorce later, it will be difficult for an unfortunate party to reject the agreement on the part that they did not understand it. We have extensive experience in developing strong, low-cost pre-marriage agreements.
