having witnesses can be useful if a question comes up in the future, but it is not mandatory. It is not mandatory that a Prenuptial Agreement be notarized, although acknowledgments before a notary public are the norm on Prenuptial Agreements. Having it notarized will provide greater protection in the future because a notary ensures validates the parties to an agreement, and keeps a record of the signing of the agreement. In addition a notarized document is required to enable the Prenuptial Agreement to be recorded by the County Recorder if desired.
