South Florida Prenuptial Agreements
South Florida Divorce Lawyer
Our firm, Hager, Schwartz & Ross, P.A., strongly recommends that a
couple that is intending to marry create a prenuptial agreement. Many
people believe that these types of agreements are only drafted when one
or both parties have a high net worth. A prenuptial can benefit any couple
by preventing conflicts if there is ever a divorce, including marriages in which:
- One party earns more or less than the other
- This is a second marriage
- One or both of the parties will be entering the marriage with children
- One or both parties have considerable debts
Anyone that owns a business who is planning to marry should also consider
the many benefits of having an agreement in place if there is a divorce.
Discussing issues such as asset division, alimony and
child support when a marriage is floundering is one of the worst times for a couple
to work out a divorce agreement. It is much easier to address these matters
before the marriage takes place, when both parties are committed to each
other's well-being. If you are planning to marry,
contact a South Florida prenuptial lawyer from our firm to find out how to draft a pre-marital agreement that will
help protect your future security.
Do you need a postnuptial agreement?
A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, only it is
written after a couple is married. It addresses the same issues, such
as property division, spousal and child support if the marriage ends in
divorce. Discussing these matters with your spouse now can result in a
fair and equitable agreement, and reduce the possibility of litigation
if your marriage breaks up. When preparing your pre or postnuptial agreement,
family law attorney at our firm will listen closely to your areas of concern, and
help you work through any agreement-related issues with your spouse.
