Orlando Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer
Historically, prenuptial agreements have been given a bad rap as marriage insurance policies for the pessimistic and very wealthy. In reality, prenuptial agreements are very useful tools for any engaged couple wanting to agree before marriage how they will handle financial matters during their marriage and in the event it doesn’t work out. At the Arwani Law Firm, PLLLC, our family law attorneys have experience preparing, negotiating, and reviewing prenuptial agreements involving high assets, business interests, significant debt, and a range of other issues. We understand it can be scary to consider the legal and financial ramifications of marriage. Our Orlando prenuptial agreement lawyers can help you begin your marriage with confidence, knowing such issues have already been worked out and set aside.
Reasons for Executing a Prenuptial Agreement before Marriage
A prenuptial agreement (also referred to as a prenup, premarital agreement, and antenuptial agreement) is a contract between soon-to-be spouses which defines how they will handle their financial affairs and other potentially contentious issues during the marriage, and/or in the event of a future divorce or death of one of the spouses. Prenuptial agreements can be important to the stability of a marriage when one or both spouses:
- Have significant assets or real estate holdings
- Have retirement benefits and/or employment benefits
- Have significant debt
- Have a business or professional practice
- Plan to go to school while the other spouse works
- Wish to protect assets for children of a prior marriage
- Anticipate a sizable inheritance in the future
Life is uncertain. A few years ago, you probably didn’t know you’d be engaged now and preparing to get married. Who knows what the future holds? That’s why it’s important to be prepared for events you cannot anticipate, and make clear your expectations, financial and otherwise, before you say “I do.” Signing a prenuptial agreement does not lead to divorce; rather it acknowledges that most marriages encounter some difficulties along the way. In fact, far from stirring up animosity, a prenuptial agreement promotes peace of mind during the marriage and fosters stability. For this reason, prenuptial agreements are not only for the wealthy. People from all walks of life can benefit from the security of a prenuptial agreement.
