Property Division and Prenuptial Agreements
Connecticut is an equitable distribution state. Property, assets and debts are divided equitably. When you have a prenuptial agreement in place, you are taking an important step toward protecting your rights during property division. Your premarital property will be excluded from property division. In some situations, a prenuptial agreement can also include property that was acquired during the marriage. However, this is a complex matter that requires attention from an experienced attorney.
