Do I Need A Premarital Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer?
Premarital Agreements also referred to as prenuptial agreements or ante-nuptial agreements are entered into prior to marriage. There is a common belief in our society that only the wealthy can benefit from a premarital agreement; that is not true. Homeowners, single parents, business owners, grandparents and professionals are just a few who should consult a prenuptial agreement lawyer. Even individuals who are just starting out in life may choose to enter into a premarital agreement and will need a prenuptial agreement lawyer.
It is always a good idea for someone contemplating marriage to look carefully at key life issues that will be impacted by the marital relationship. Engaged couples often undergo premarital counseling with a member of the clergy or a marriage and family counselor. Likewise, it is a very good idea to discuss legal matters with a prenuptial agreement lawyer.
A prenuptial agreement lawyer can draft an agreement that serve many purposes, and is an especially wise choice if:
- One spouse has separate, significant assets
- The couple has children from a previous marriage
- One spouse has received an inheritance
- One spouse has a trust fund
- A spouse owns a family business
- This is a second marriage
Is the Premarital/Prenuptial Agreement Enforceable?
A prenuptial agreement lawyer will be advise you that Florida law requires the full disclosure of all assets in order to ensure that a prenuptial agreement will be enforceable. A prenuptial agreement lawyer can challenged a prenuptial agreement so that it is unenforceable if assets are hidden or full disclosure of assets and debts were not documented in the agreement. For a prenuptial agreement to stand up under future scrutiny, it is also important that neither member of the engaged couple be pressured or forced to sign. That’s why a prenuptial agreement signed on the day of the wedding may not be enforceable. It is recommended that a prenuptial agreement be drafted and signed with as much time as possible before the wedding date.
