A prenuptial agreement can accomplish many goals. Typically, the purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to define what will be considered separate property in the event the marriage disintegrates. Often, a prenuptial agreement is utilized to protect the inheritance of a spouse’s children from a previous relationship. A Florida prenuptial agreement can also be utilized in situations where one spouse expects to receive a sizable inheritance, or when each spouse has substantial assets or income of their own, or where one spouse has significantly more assets than the other.
In a postnuptial agreement, the two partners are already married, and are entering into the postnuptial agreement to plan for death or divorce. The purpose of a postnuptial agreement is to determine how property shall be divided upon dissolution of the marriage through death or divorce. Married couples looking for a postnuptial agreement should contact Welch Law. We can clarify the terms of the postnuptial agreement and ensure that all scenarios have been covered.
