Minnesota law requires that antenuptial agreements be in writing, signed before two witnesses and notarized. A court will enforce a properly drafted antenuptial agreement if both parties were of legal age when it was executed, both parties made a fair and full disclosure of their property and earnings and both parties had the opportunity to consult with an independent attorney of their choice during the drafting and execution of the agreement. Any antenuptial agreement that involves real estate must be filed and recorded according to the same procedures as property deeds are filed and recorded.
