In order to create the prenup each party is going to need to assemble a list of their income, assets, debts, and expenses. An agreed-upon list of issues is also going to help the lawyer who is going to negotiate and draft the prenup. Presumably the parties have discussed, at least in a general sense, what they’re trying to accomplish with the prenup before they consult with their attorney. Exchanging that information with the lawyer, together with the income, assets, debts and expenses, there’s going to be a real good start in the process.
