You're getting married - congratulations! A marriage is partnership on many levels, one of those being a financial partnership. If you owned a company, would you merge your business with another company without knowing anything about the other company's financial standing and without a plan as to how the two companies will jointly operate and handle finances together? Probably not, yet most couples do this frequently by getting married without a Florida prenuptial agreement. The process of creating this agreement forces couples to examine each other's financial standing and to think about how property and debt will be divided and handled.
Even if you are already married, it is not too late to enter a Florida postnuptial agreement that gets a couple on the same page as to how finances will be handled in the event of divorce or death. A postmarital agreement may also provide a tune-up for a pre-nuptial agreement that needs updating due to changed financial circumstances.
Miami Pre-Nuptial Agreements
A common misconception about marital agreements is that they are only useful to people who have a lot of money and property to protect. More than protecting property, this agreement can guide how finances will be handled during the marriage, as well as provide peace-of-mind knowing that if divorce happens, you are less likely to spend large sums of money litigating over issues that are already pre-determined in an agreement. Too, while you may not have a lot of money and property going into a marriage, years down the line you may earn substantial property and income that you should consider protecting now.
Detailed and technical requirements must be met to give your Florida premarital agreement the best shot at being enforced if divorce happens. Therefore it is very important that you hire a lawyer with experience and knowledge in this area.
