Understanding Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer Serving Tampa
With the soaring rate of divorce in Florida, it has grown increasingly
common for couples to execute prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Divorce litigation has acquired a reputation for being particularly contentious, given the
emotional nature of the issues in question. In order to guard against
the potential for conflict over matters such as
property division, many couples choose to set out their agreements over prenuptial assets
and marital property in contract form. These agreements have gained wider
acceptance as a practical measure for preventing drawn-out and costly
legal battles, rather than being viewed as a prediction that the marriage
will have no longevity.
The knowledgeable guidance and assistance of a Tampa divorce lawyer from
the Law Offices of Manuel Fajardo is essential in drafting a prenuptial
or postnuptial agreement that will stand up to intense scrutiny and challenges
in a divorce. While it may seem to be a simple task to draw up an agreement
between you and your future or current spouse, you should recognize that
it is a legal contract, subject to strict legal requirements for validity.
Your lawyer can also help you with the filling and notarization and enforcement
of the agreement.
How a Tampa Divorce Lawyer Can Help
If you are considering making a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement with
your spouse, come to Law Offices of Manuel Fajardo for a
free case evaluation. It is important to learn about the legal implications of such agreements
and the benefits they may provide you in the event of divorce. We especially
encourage individuals with significant financial assets or property to
pursue prenuptial agreements, while it is often wise to make a post-nuptial
agreement when you learn that you will be inheriting money or before making
large purchases using the financial resources of one of the marital partners.
