It’s surprisingly inexpensive. Assuming that you’re represented by a lawyer who’s been through this process, it’s a relatively straightforward situation. Your lawyer should be able to get the work done and the negotiations completed and give you a signed, enforceable document by maybe expending a handful of hours. It’s not necessarily a long, drawn out, expensive, complicated process, it’s relatively straightforward. The cost benefit analysis clearly is in support of getting a prenup done, and having it done properly.
