PUNTA GORDA DIVORCE LAWYERS
Although no one wants to imagine their marriage ending, issues can arise that lead to divorce. Preparing for all possible outcomes is important, and having a nuptial agreement in place could be very beneficial. We have more than 25 years of experience and we can help you draft an enforceable nuptial agreement to protect your assets.
WHO NEEDS A PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT?
A prenuptial agreement, often referred to as a prenup, is a legally binding contract between a marrying couple. The contract outlines how assets, debts, and properties will be divided in the event of divorce or the death of one spouse.
While having a prenuptial is beneficial in a variety of situations, it is especially wise to have one in place if any of the following are accurate:
- You have significant personal wealth
- You own a business
- You have children or grandchildren from a previous marriage
- You have relatives that need require care, such as an elderly parent
- You are entering the marriage with a home, stocks, retirement fund, or other assets
- You are in the midst of obtaining a license or degree in a lucrative industry
If you are planning to get married but would like to make sure your assets are protected so that you can retain them for personal use or to later pass down, a prenuptial agreement could provide numerous advantages. We can help you understand your options and assist you and your spouse with drafting a contract that is agreeable to both of you.
WHAT ARE POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS?
As the name suggests, a postnuptial agreement is much like a prenuptial agreement, except it is created after a couple has already wed. If you are married and frequently worry about your assets and personal property, you should speak with a lawyer about drafting a postnuptial agreement. Voluntarily entering into a postnuptial contract can provide relief from anxiety, as you and your spouse will no longer have to worry about the risk to your financial security if your marriage should ever come to an end. Having an enforceable postnuptial agreement in place will enable you to know how your assets will be divided should you and your spouse ever divorce.
