Uniform Premarital Agreements Act Law and Legal Definition

Uniform Premarital Agreements Act (UPAA) is a 1983 model statute which governs the drafting of premarital contracts and provides a more certain framework for drafting complete and enforceable agreements. Under the UPAA, a premarital agreement should be in writing and signed by the parties. However, this agreement shall become effective only upon marriage. The agreement shall govern the assets, support, and obligations of parties during the marriage, death, and upon divorce.
