This is not an all-inclusive list, but highlights some of the areas where people may want to safeguard themselves if they are drafting a prenuptial agreement. Generally, the more terms that are included in a prenuptial agreement, the smoother a divorce may be.

A party seeking to have their prenuptial agreement rendered invalid must show that they:
- Made the agreement involuntarily and were not free of coercion or duress
