Financial Security Now
Do not leave the future consequences of your impending marriage up to chance. Work with an attorney to create a prenuptial agreement to meet your specific needs and provides ongoing security for both you and your future spouse.
In decades past, prenuptial agreements were associated with rich celebrities who had a long list of ex-spouses, but these days many people recognize that a prenuptial agreement can be a great way for any couple to bring stability into their marriage by essentially removing the government from imposing itself on the marriage in a divorce trial. At the Law Offices of Ira M. Marcus, P.A., we will help you create and finalize a prenuptial agreement which honors the interests of all parties involved while providing lasting stability, no matter what the future may bring.
Creating an Agreement
Florida has specific laws as to the creation and efficacy of a valid prenuptial agreement. We will work with you to make sure all requirements are met and the agreement reflects your interests.
Amending an Agreement
If you already have a prenuptial agreement in place, and are interested in amending the agreement through addition or deletion, revoking the agreement, or abandoning it, we can help you achieve those goals.
What a Prenuptial Agreement Covers
Under Florida law, you and spouse-to-be can work together to validly create a prenuptial agreement which will determine how a wide range of financial issues should be addressed, including the following:
The right to ownership of property
The division of property in a divorce
The right to transfer property
The right to and terms of alimony
The right to inherit by will or trust
Any rights to insurance / pension payouts
Why a Prenup Makes Sense
Historically, people have taken a cynical view towards prenuptial agreements, but regardless of your views on marriage or finances, a prenuptial agreement can make enormous sense. Without a prenuptial agreement, couples who decide to divorce often end up arguing over property and alimony, which can affect all family members, resulting in high legal fees, emotional scars, and lengthy delays.
By working with an attorney to create a prenuptial agreement that provides for each spouse, both parties can focus on their marriage without worry over unknown consequences in a divorce.
