A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding agreement signed before marriage that dictates how assets are to be distributed in the event of a dissolution of your marriage. Prenuptial agreements can, in appropriate cases, help couples achieve a feeling of security about their finances, especially when there is a great disparity in income among the parties. Prenuptials are also common in second marriages, when either party has children from a previous marriage whom they want to financially protect.
The law generally permits parties to be creative when making decisions regarding the nature of their existing and future assets. Here at The Law Offices of Daniel J. Brazil, P.A., we are experienced in drafting these agreements as needed in order to successfully suit the understandings and concerns of the parties.
It is crucial to retain a knowledgeable attorney to help both parties in drafting a prenuptial agreement. Both parties must disclose their earnings and property, the agreement must be in writing, and there must be a statement of the assets and income of the parties in order for the agreement to be enforced by a court. To make sure there is a full and competent understanding by both parties regarding a prenuptial agreement, contact our offices to speak with our family law legal staff regarding your case.
