PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS & POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements may be a factor in divorces. Where, before they get married, one or both spouses have significant assets, the spouses may create prenuptial agreements to safeguard assets. Likewise, if the spouses obtain a large amount of assets during their marriage, they may enter into a postnuptial agreement as a means of telling the court how they wish to treat such assets in the event of a divorce.
The attorneys at the Law Office of John Vernon, Moore P.A. understand the importance of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in providing couples with the necessary planning and safety that they may need in the future.
Prenuptial Agreements in Florida
A prenuptial agreement is a contract that outlines the terms and conditions of possession of assets written and agreed upon before marriage. In addition, a prenuptial agreement safeguards both parties’ financial interests in the event of a divorce. In Florida, the spouse who is bound by the contract must be given the opportunity to read the agreement and must decide to sign this on their own free will.
Postnuptial Agreements in Florida
After marriage, a postnuptial agreement is a contract agreed upon and signed outlining the terms and possession of the assets. It is similar to a prenuptial agreement, since it also protects both parties’ financial interests in the event of a divorce.
An important set of issues relating to a pre- or post-nuptial agreement is what happened in the case of the death of a spouse. In Florida, there are estate laws that provide for a surviving spouse to receive a legal minimum share of assets, but a pre- or post-nuptial agreement may waive that provision and specify what each spouse is receiving. Our attorneys ensure to cover the agreements from every aspect to safeguard your interests.
