Premarital agreement drafting and enforcement in Florida

On behalf of Furr & Cohen, P.A. posted in Divorce on Thursday, January 29, 2015.

We have previously discussed some of the aspects of your life that are handled in a divorce. We have talked about how you might be ordered to pay alimony or child support, depending on the circumstances and how the Florida laws affect those aspects. We have discussed child custody and visitation. We have also discussed property division and how that can lead to some difficult decisions.

One way that you can ensure you will get what is yours during a divorce is to have a prenuptial agreement signed before you get married. This document can include information about who is going to get what property in the event of a divorce. Some people think they can only cover property in these agreements. There is much more to a prenuptial agreement.

Provisions regarding support and alimony can be included in prenuptial agreements. Protections for your heirs can also be included. As you can see, there are several things to consider when you are seeking a prenuptial agreement. We can help you to ensure that your interests are protected in the agreement.

If you are already married, you don’t have to fret. It is possible to enter into a post-nuptial agreement with your spouse. These agreements have the same function as a prenuptial agreement but are made after you are already married. A post-nuptial agreement can also be used to modify a prenuptial agreement.

When your marriage ends, the time to enforce the agreement is at hand. This requires strong representation to ensure that the terms are followed as intended. We can help you to make sure that your business, retirement and other assets covered in the agreement are kept safe.
