The Need for a Prenuptial Agreement
If you are contemplating marriage, including marrying for a second or third time, we encourage you to work with our family law attorney to draft a prenuptial agreement. That all‑important document can protect your right to premarital property or your children’s right to your estate.
Even though most of our clients who are remarrying truly want the marriage to last, many realize that circumstances change, and wish to take the pragmatic step of protecting their financial interests. They also recognize that the divorce rate for second and third marriages is even higher than the divorce rate for first marriages, so they ask our family law firm to review or draft a prenuptial agreement complying with Florida law.
A Prenuptial Agreement Providing the Protection You Need
An agreement concerning property division may be useful in protecting:
- Property rights of children from a previous marriage in case you die before your new spouse.
- Equity and investment in your home that was earned before your new spouse moved in.
- Family heirlooms that you want to be sure go to your children.
- Family owned or closely held business interests
- Helping You with Property Division and Alimony in a Pre-nup
Couples often reach an agreement regarding alimony prior to a marriage, too. If you have been talking with your fiancé about property division or spousal support issues, you may wish to consult with Mr. Smith.
