Florida Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
Couples usually enter into the covenant of marriage hoping it will last forever, but the unfortunate reality is that about half of marriages end in divorce. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are documents that can be drafted to protect spouses’ interests. Choosing to enter into these agreements is a smart and prudent decision for many couples, whether they are planning for the future or have experienced an event that changed the nature of their current marriage relationships.
At Ami L. DiLorenzo, P.A., our Ocala family law attorney will carefully draft your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. With the significant litigation experience, we can also represent you in conflicts related to an existing document.
- Pre and postnuptial agreements are good for:
- Defining and clarifying joint property ownership and debts.
- Predetermining the status of future financial interests, such as those related to businesses and retirement accounts.
- Anticipating the division of property in the case of divorce.
- Setting any alimony issues in stone.
Our law firm prepares prenuptial agreements for people throughout Florida. Our clients include individuals with substantial wealth, as well as people who, relatively speaking, have fewer assets.
Regardless of the nature of your personal financial situation, a prenuptial agreement may help protect your interests. More than just addressing wealth, today’s prenuptial agreements also address debts and which party will be responsible for them upon death or divorce. Agreements also can be drafted to protect your premarital property and establish whether alimony will be paid and how much in the event of a divorce.
Every married couple is unique, and the commitments the partners have made to each other hold unique meaning. For some, this meaning is religious. For others, it is a practical commitment to stay together for financial reasons or for the good of the children.
A postnuptial agreement is a legal contract which two parties may enter into after getting married. This kind of agreement can help you and your spouse to define the status of individual and joint property and debts, and set a course for the division of property in the case of a future separation or divorce. Our Ocala family law attorney will readily draft an agreeable and legally defensible postnuptial agreement for you and your spouse.
