Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Panama Beach City Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

Safeguard Your Future by Protecting Your Interests

In recent years, there has been a significant and noticeable shift in how Americans perceive the concepts of marriage and divorce. Young or old, people are approaching their first, second, and even third marriages with open eyes and a practical “hope for the best, but plan for the worst” mentality. However, this isn’t pessimism, but a realistic awareness that relationships, financial circumstances, and family dynamics change over time. For this reason, a record number of engaged couples are signing prenuptial agreements, or “prenups,” before walking down the aisle.

If you’re interested in drafting a prenup, contact the Panama Beach City prenuptial agreement lawyers at The Virga Law Firm, P.A. We can help you negotiate and establish a comprehensive legal contract that safeguards your personal and financial future. If you file for divorce one day, this document can protect both you and your spouse from experiencing the repercussions of a costly, high-conflict divorce.

We’re available 24/7. Contact our Panama Beach City prenuptial agreement attorneys at (800) 822-5170 to schedule a consultation.

The Benefits of Drafting a “Prenup”

Despite popular misconceptions, prenuptial agreements aren’t just for millionaires and celebrities. If anything, drafting this important legal contract should be regarded as an opportunity. During your appointment, you and you partner can openly discuss your personal concerns and financial anxieties in a safe space. In most cases, this process alleviates pre-wedding jitters and circumvents future marital disagreements.

A prenuptial agreement addresses the following divorce issues and more:

  • How will your marital assets and property be divided?
  • Which debts are part of the marital estate and who is responsible for paying them?
  • How are earnings allocated?
  • What happens to any jointly-owned businesses?
  • What happens to the family home?
  • How much support should be given to children from previous marriages?

A prenuptial agreement needs to be designed based on your specific circumstances and personal concerns. It can’t, however, protect a spouse from paying alimony or child support in the future. Likewise, the court determines child custody and visitation based on upon the “child’s best interests,” not a prenuptial agreement.

The greatest benefit of this document is that it expedites the divorce process and protects your marital estate from being unfairly divided. Aside from the exceptions previously listed, the court typically abides by the terms stated in a prenuptial agreement. Our experienced legal team can help you negotiate a valid and comprehensive prenuptial agreement that reflects and achieves your personal, legal and financial objectives.

Postnuptial Agreements

Fortunately, you aren’t out of luck if you didn’t draft a prenup before signing your marriage license. A postnuptial agreement offers the same benefits and protections; the only difference is that it’s completed after the wedding. Whether your marriage was last month or 20+ years ago, you can contact our firm to start the drafting process today!
