Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Enforceable Florida pre-nuptial and post-nuptial marital agreements

To secure your assets or not to secure your assets?!

The Answer is Clear. 

 

The biggest mistake you can make before getting married is not taking the necessary steps to protect all that you have worked so hard for prior to marriage, and all of the many things that you will accomplish after.  Business owners, ambitious entrepreneurs, successful professionals, and anyone who has sizeable assets--or who intend to acquire sizable assets in the future--must take the right steps to protect what is theirs in case of two major life events: 1) Death of a spouse during the marriage and 2) Divorce.

No one wants to plan for a divorce or death, but life happens,

and failing to plan is a truly a plan to fail.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRENUPTIAL AND POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENT?

Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements are both written contracts that define what property is marital and non-marital, and how that property will be distributed upon death or divorce.  The primary difference between these documents is whether the agreement was signed by the parties before or during the marriage.

For prenuptial agreements,  the parties must allow a waiting period to pass after signing the agreement and before the marriage is solemnized to reduce the risk of the agreement being challenged on the basis of duress, coercion, or similar defenses.  In other words, a prenuptial agreement should be signed well before the date of marriage and before any significant wedding purchases are made.
