Postnuptial Agreements Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Can Postnuptial Agreements Be Enforced in Florida?

Speak with Our Florida Family Law Attorneys Today– (800) 822-5170

As in any endeavor, planning and foresight can help you avoid significant issues along the way. A solid plan is often the best way to achieve your goals. Many couples choose to prepare for their marriage with an agreement called a prenuptial agreement. This type of agreement can protect assets and properties from being unfairly distributed during a potential divorce.

A postnuptial, on the other hand, is an agreement that lets couples make these plans after they have been married. The legal requirements for prenuptials and postnuptials are very similar, but there is one significant difference. A postnuptial agreement will require you to fully disclose your finances.

Are you seeking a postnuptial agreement? Call The Virga Law Firm, P.A. at (800) 822-5170 to schedule your consultation.

What Are the Advantages of a Postnuptial Agreement?

Postnuptial agreements provide a married couple with more control over their assets and property if their marriage dissolves or one spouse passes away unexpectedly.

The issues handled by a postnuptial include:

  • Which spouse will receive what share of the property
  • Which spouse will pay spousal support, the duration of the support, and the amount to be paid
  • Which spouse is responsible for certain debts, such as loans, credit cards, and mortgages
  • Which spouse owns the rights to life insurance and other such policies

Remember, you will need to make a full financial disclosure should you wish to create a postnuptial agreement. You will also need to provide an affirmation, since this is legally binding. This serves an important purpose, since it protects the spouses should one try to hide their wealth to prevent it from being accounted for in a divorce settlement. You are not, however, obligated to sign an agreement that you are not entirely comfortable with. If you have questions about your postnuptial agreement preparations, don’t hesitate to call The Virga Law Firm, P.A.
