The Difference Between Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is a legally valid contract entered into by both parties before they are legally married. This agreement controls the many financial issues raised if the parties decides to divorce at a later date. A postnuptial agreement is a legal agreement the parties draft and execute after they are married. Like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement controls the financial issues and risks that may arise if the parties ever decide to divorce.
The postnuptial agreement is often a legal mechanism to protect the parties from the uncertainties associated with divorce litigation. However, if you are currently contemplating marriage, the prenuptial agreement should be entered into while you have the opportunity to reach an agreement. Once married, if a postnuptial agreement cannot be reached by the parties, then you will be subjected to divorce litigation based on Florida's divorce statutes.
What Does a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement Do?
Some people hold prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in a negative light, seeing it as a promise to divorce one day. However, this is simply not the case. Instead, we encourage people to see a prenuptial agreement as a safety net under their marriage: you never want to use it, but you would be upset if you didn't have it in the event that you needed it. It allows you to plot out key points and expectations just in case you do ever go through a divorce or separation.
A prenuptial agreement can help you pre-decide matters related to:
These agreements cannot typically decide any matters related to:
The court always has to rule in favor of a child’s best interests, which requires knowing the most current information about the family’s relationships, incomes, and day-to-day life. Postnuptial and prenuptial agreements are made in advance, so the most current and relevant information related to a child’s well-being cannot be known.
Why You Should Consider a Prenuptial Agreement
Knowing what a prenuptial agreement can do, you may still be wondering how this could benefit you. This is a question we hear often from clients. There are many benefits to having a postnuptial or prenuptial agreement in place.
When you have a prenup or postnup, you can enjoy these advantages:
- Spend less time in court if you divorce
- Saving time on a divorce also saves money
- Peace of mind knowing you have a “safety net”
