Marital Settlement / Pre Nuptials / Post Nuptials

A Prenuptial Agreement (“prenup”) is a crucial planning tool that can save you stress, time, and money down the road, which is signed before a marriage. A prenuptial agreement can protect your assets by exempting them from equitable distribution of marital property, in the case of divorce.

Many couples find themselves litigating far less in the event of divorce by determining the treatment of their assets in advance, through a prenuptial agreement.

When Should a Prenuptial Agreement in Florida Be Taken into Consideration

A Prenuptial Agreement should be taken into consideration if you:

  • You have significantly higher earnings than your spouse
  • You have ownership of significantly more assets than your spouse
  • You are about to marry someone who has significant liabilities
  • In a prior relationship you had children
  • A large inheritance or gift is expected, or you are a beneficiary of a trust
  • You are a business owner
  • You had a prior marriage

Florida Post Nuptial Agreement

Post nuptial agreements, which provide direction on how to settle affairs in the event of a divorce, can be entered into by married couples. They generally include provisions for dividing property, death of one of the spouses, spousal support, marital break-up, and other issues, although every post nuptial agreement is different, and each couple has their own unique circumstances. You can avoid stress, costly and time-consuming litigation, with a post nuptial agreement, giving you more control over your financial future and that of your children.
