Prenuptial agreements have been around for 2,000 years, but they are relatively new to Florida.
According a survey of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the number of people looking to enter into a prenuptial agreement has increased in number dramatically in recent years, and this is especially true among millennials.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two people who are contemplating marriage that outlines procedures for what will happen if they divorce or separate, or one of them dies. The issues dealt with typically involve spousal support, division of property, and distribution of wealth.
Prenuptial agreements are designed to protect assets, and certain types of future earnings in the event of a divorce or a death. An effective prenuptial agreement requires full financial disclosure by both parties, and the agreement must be carefully drafted in order to be valid. For that, you need an attorney who knows Florida family law.
If you are planning to be married and think a prenuptial agreement would be in your best interest, Zweben Law Group can help. We will assist you in drafting an agreement that will not only effectively distribute wealth and divide property, but also will stand up to any challenges made later in court.
