Entering into a prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for many couples intending to marry. It may provide for how marital assets are to be distributed in the event of death or divorce, and protect assets, income and inheritance plans for loved ones. A prenup is especially important for those with significant personal assets and children from previous relationships.
At Weiner & Weiss, LLC, our family law attorneys help clients prepare sound prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. From our offices in Boca Raton, we represent clients throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties in South Florida.
Too often, couples heading down the aisle allow romantic stars in their eyes to blind them to relationship reality. When in fact we all know that life is unpredictable, and a prenuptial agreement gives people the opportunity to specify what will happen with their assets in the event of divorce or death. Moreover, modern couples should understand that a prenuptial agreement does not reflect unfavorably on one’s feelings for his or her future spouse.
A solidly written prenuptial agreement can protect assets you bring into the marriage, such as:
A prenup can also provide for spousal support payments and distribution of property should a marriage end; it can also ensure that one spouse is not attached to any risky business ventures pursued by the other spouse. Deciding on these issues when one is calm and clearheaded can help avoid stress and uncertainty, as well as lengthy legal proceedings, in the future.
As the name indicates, postnuptial agreements are created after a marriage has begun. When married couples have concerns about finances or asset protection, voluntarily entering into a postnuptial agreement can put an end to worry and anxiety by addressing one or both spouses threatened financial security. Like prenuptial agreements, they can provide the means of knowing exactly what would happen in the case of a divorce and how both spouses would be able to support themselves.
