Protect Your Rights In Florida And Abroad With A Premarital or Postnuptial Agreement
At Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., our experienced international family law attorneys assist clients who are contemplating marriage via the preparation of prenuptial agreements. Postnuptial agreements are an option for couples who have already been married but wish to lay out a plan that protects their individual assets in the event of a divorce or other significant changes in the future. We draft agreements according to all current Florida laws and regulations, including Florida’s Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA) and Florida Statutes Chapter 61, Section 079 regarding premarital agreements.
Our German, American and United Kingdom attorneys are uniquely qualified to draft, review, and enforce domestic and international pre- or post-marital agreements. Whether you are looking to protect property and assets you are bringing into the marriage or to determine how your marital estate will be divided in the event of a divorce, our attorneys can prepare an agreement tailored to your specific needs. We are also experienced in representing clients who are parties to divorce proceedings with or without a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place.
You Do Not Have To Be Rich To Benefit From A Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement places both parties in control. By agreeing to how certain assets should be handled now, a hypothetical divorce will not place your destiny in the hands of a judge’s decision that you may not agree with. Whether you have average assets going into your marriage or you are a multimillionaire, you can benefit from the structure and certainty that a properly drafted prenuptial or postnuptial agreement provides.
Do You Own A Business?
Small-business owners who own a closely held business often obtain prenuptial agreements to protect their business and business partners from the fallout of a potential future divorce. An agreement can also set a baseline for the business value at the time of the marriage, making future earnings from the business subject to division in a divorce while protecting the value the business owner built prior to getting married.
Not Your First Marriage?
One of the most common reasons people seek a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is due to the marriage not being their first. This is especially important for people who already have children from a prior marriage. A prenuptial agreement can set aside certain assets or property from the first marriage, leaving it for a person’s heirs rather than commingling them with the new marital estate. A prenuptial agreement also provides an opportunity to avoid mistakes that were made in a previous marriage with regard to protecting property and financial assets.
