Prenuptial Agreements: Protecting Your Assets
If you are considering getting married in the Sarasota-Manatee area, you may be worried about protecting the assets that you and your family have worked for. This is especially true in areas like ours, where many people have retired and want to remarry but are worried about how their marriage may affect the financial security of their adult children.
Generally, a properly prepared prenuptial or postnuptial agreement will be upheld in Florida. This means it is very important to retain a competent attorney who can properly prepare an agreement for clients seeking prenuptial agreements. After the agreement is complete, your family law attorney should ensure that you understand how to keep your assets separate.
- Alimony – whether a party can be entitled to it and if so, at what amount
- Equitable Distribution – or how the marital property and assets will be divided.
What can prenuptial agreements cover?
- How the couple will manage and control property during the marriage and how they will divide the property in the event of a divorce
- How retirement plans or pensions will be divided in the event of a legal separation
- Whether or not life insurance proceeds will go to the surviving spouse
- Whether one spouse will pay alimony or spousal support, and how much support will be paid
