|Thank you for your question, Roller.
We suggest that you simply sign your prenup, notarize it, and keep it in a safe place.
Based on our understanding of current law, the prenup need not be registered with the state. The prenuptial agreement must be in written form and signed by both parties voluntarily. As in any contract the parties must have the capacity to contract in order to enter into a bonding agreement. It’s good to have the document acknowledged by a notary public but this is not necessary in many states.
However some states require formalities, as notarization or an acknowledgement (Arizona, Arkansas, California, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico and New York) and we believe that it's better to have the prenuptial agreement notarized. Our forms have a specific section to do that.
