Actor Liam Hemsworth filed for divorce from entertainer Miley Cyrus after only eight months of marriage due to irreconcilable differences. The celebrity couple married in December 2018 and were a couple for 10 years on and off before that. Before the marriage occurred, both parties signed a prenuptial agreement. They shared about fifteen pets, which Cyrus originally adopted as a single woman, and a recently agreed upon custody arrangement grants Cyrus custody of their pets.
Signing a prenuptial agreement before marriage ensures that both parties understand the financial aspects of a potential split and possible custody arrangements in the future. Oftentimes, a prenuptial agreement establishes what the proposed division of property will be ahead of a divorce and may determine the parameters of spousal support. Additionally, it may outline pet custody arrangements beforehand, so that both parties are protected in the event of a divorce.
