SIMPLY A WISE DECISION
A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract between two individuals who are anticipating marriage. The contract sets forth what each partner’s obligations and respective rights will be during the marriage and after the marriage if the parties divorce. A prenuptial agreement can help couples avoid lengthy and costly legal battles if the marriage ends in divorce. Prenuptial agreements typically address the distribution of assets, the division of property, the allocation of debts, and the issue of alimony. In Florida, parenting responsibilities and child support issues cannot be addressed in a prenuptial agreement. Postnuptial agreements are similar, legally binding contracts that cover the same issues, but these are signed after the parties are already married. An experienced Fort Lauderdale prenuptial agreement lawyer can help you prepare a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement and ensure that the final document is legally binding under Florida law and enforceable on both parties.
DO I NEED A PRENUPTIAL OR POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENT?
Even if you believe that your marriage will never end, entering a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is still a wise decision. These agreements must be in writing and both parties should have their own independent counsel in order to make sure that neither party is being coerced and that no advantage is taken by either side. At Lindsey Wilson, we can explain your options, protect your rights, and help you take the right steps toward a brighter future. We invite you to schedule an appointment by phone at (954) 399-2821 or by e-mail through this website to discuss your needs, options, and legal rights as quickly as possible.
