Premarital Agreements are not right for every couple! Prenuptial Agreements are most prevalent in second marriages. They are especially prevalent in first or second marriages when one or both of the parties have children of a prior marriage or relationship. They are also prevalent when a future spouse has a child or children from a prior relationship.
Prenuptial Agreements are extremely enforceable in Rhode Island (RI). A Prenuptial Agreement is also commonly called a Premarital Agreement or an Antenuptial agreement.
Rhode Island state law requires a 60-day waiting period after the couple has filed a petition, but the court reserves the right to hear cases sooner should it be deemed appropriate. During the 60 days, the court has the discretion to investigate claims and order counseling.
