As unromantic a legal document as it may be, a prenuptial agreement can outline issues such as wills, trusts, and life insurance policies (for estate planning) as well as alimony and property rights (in case of divorce). This type of contract is not just for the wealthy anymore. Prospective spouses in any situation can benefit from having all their legal bases covered.
At Crary Buchanan, you can find the premier representation you deserve to make sure your interests are thoroughly protected. Our dedicated staff includes AV® rated attorneys, a testament to our firm’s professionalism and outstanding ability. With more than 85 years’ experience backing our firm, our Port St. Lucie family attorneys are prepared to guide you through every step of this complicated process.
What is included in a prenuptial agreement?
Unfortunately, many myths surround the prenup and its purpose. To put the minds of our clients (and potential clients) at ease, we have taken the time to better define the terms, conditions, and goals that premarital agreements can be used for among marrying couples who wish to ease any potential conflicts that could arise in the future.
Through the terms of a premarital agreement, couples can specify:
- How their finances will be handled: Finances can be kept separate so they will not need to be divided in the event of divorce
- How their debt will be managed: The debts of one spouse will not adversely affect another if the premarital agreement protects them from owing money on behalf of their spouse
- How property will be kept in the family: If your personal property includes something that you wish to remain in the family, you can specify so in the premarital agreement, thus preventing loss upon divorce or passing away
- How your assets will be divided: You can define who will get what if a split occurs, rather than leaving the decision up to state law
- How your marital responsibilities will be defined: You can determine who will handle tax payments, household bills, savings, joint vs. separate bank accounts, credit card charges, large purchases, etc.
If a prenup includes frivolous or invalid terms, or if the document is drafted last minute, then you run the risk of having a court throw out this crucial agreement. You need to ensure that this legal process is done with precision. The best way to do this is to work with a seasoned legal advocate.
