Pinellas Park Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Who Needs a Prenuptial Agreement?
Our Pinellas Park firm, Emerson &Valentine, P.A., strongly recommends that a couple that is intending to marry create a prenuptial agreement with the assistance of an experienced family lawyer. Many people believe that these types of agreements are only drafted when one or both parties have a high net worth. A prenuptial can benefit any couple by preventing conflicts if there is ever a divorce, including marriages in which:
- One party earns more or less than the other
- This is a second marriage
- One or both of the parties will be entering the marriage with children
- One or both parties have considerable debts
- One or both parties have certain assets they wish to keep as separate property (non-marital property)
Prenuptial Agreements & Business Ownership
Anyone that owns a Pinellas Park business who is planning to marry should also consider the many benefits of having an agreement in place if there is a divorce. Discussing issues such as asset division and alimony when a marriage is floundering is one of the worst times for a couple to work out a divorce agreement. It is much easier to address these matters before the marriage takes place, when both parties are committed to each other’s well-being. If you are planning to marry, contact Emerson Law, P.A. to speak with a qualified family lawyer who can help you learn how to draft a pre-marital agreement that will help protect your future security.
