Postnuptial Agreements Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Postnuptial Agreements

Your Fort Walton Beach Family Law Attorneys

Life after marriage can be stressful, and worrying about your future assets and debts can make it even more so. In many cases, couples choose to create a postnuptial agreement to put these concerns to rest. A postnuptial agreement can protect or reorganize your marital properties in the event of divorce or death.

Unlike a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is created after a couple is married. Although both documents can essentially accomplish the same things, postnuptial agreements require the disclosure of all financial information, whereas prenuptial agreements do not.

Developing a Postnuptial Agreement

In order to be enforceable and valid within the state of Florida, postnuptial agreements must meet the following requirements:

  • All information pertaining to the agreement must be written in the document. Oral agreements are not enforceable.
  • All financial information, including assets, debts, and income, must be fully disclosed to both parties upon drafting the document.
  • Both parties must sign the document purposefully and voluntarily.
  • The terms of the postnuptial agreement must be fair and executable. In the event of a dissolution, the court will review the terms written in the agreement. If blatantly one-sided, the court will consider the agreement unfair and unenforceable.
  • The agreement must be notarized within the state of Florida.

The proper family law attorney can help develop the right agreement for you and your spouse.

Through a postnuptial agreement, you and your spouse can predetermine:

  • How assets and liabilities will be split in the event of a dissolution
  • If and for how long spousal support payments will occur
  • How assets will be handled in the event one spouse dies during marriage

Establishing these prior to a disillusion can greatly alleviate divorce negotiations or litigation down the road. In the event of a divorce, the postnuptial agreement can even be used as a separation agreement.
