Formal requirements for prenuptial agreements in Finland include: the agreement must be made in writing, both parties must consent to the terms within, it must be dated and signed by both parties, the agreement must be witnessed by two disinterested persons, and it must be submitted to the Local Register Office (the Maistraatti).
