What Steps are Necessary to Enter a Valid Premarital Agreement in Tennessee?

Tennessee law allows a couple to enter a prenuptial agreement with regard to the assets held by each prior to their marriage. The prenuptial agreement must be executed according to the same law that governs other contracts in the state of Tennessee. It is good practice for the premarital agreement to be in writing and signed by both parties. A premarital agreement that was not entered into freely, knowledgeably and in good faith or that was executed under coercion or undue influence will not be enforced.
