Prenuptial Agreements in Pembroke Pines

Strengthen Marriage by Establishing Agreement

What is a prenuptial agreement? Prenuptial agreements are legal arrangements created before a marriage to declare what will and will not change throughout the course of that marriage regarding assets, spousal support, and other matters. With clearly defined boundaries on what a marriage can do, both parties can remain independent. Designing prenuptial agreements is best done with the help of a professional who is familiar with the potential difficulties involved. The Pembroke Pines family lawyer at the Law Office of Jerome P. Ventura has over 25 years of experience helping couples draft such agreements. Our Fort Lauderdale prenuptial agreement lawyers are ready to help you with your Florida prenup!

While many people have reservations about prenuptial and postnuptial marital agreements, they are flexible tools that can empower couples to define aspects of their marriage in unique and creative ways rather than being bound by rigid laws. It’s also important to realize that these agreements are not unchangeable. They can be modified over time as couples learn more about their relationship.

Elements of a Valid Prenuptial Agreement

For a prenup to be valid in Florida, it must have the following:

  • Include a full disclosure of the income and assets of each party
  • Each party must enter the agreement by choice and not by threat
  • The agreement must be in writing and signed by each party
  • The terms must be reasonable and clear
  • Adequate time must be allotted for each party to review the terms

What Are the Benefits of Having a Prenuptial Agreement?

  • Open communication
  • Protection of property and important family items
  • Protect yourself from debt
  • Ensures fairness in sharing assets
  • Makes divorce less complicated

Prenuptial Agreement vs Postnuptial Agreement

Prenuptial (before marriage) and postnuptial (after marriage) agreements spell out how a couple will divide their assets if their marriage dissolves.

Is Your Prenup Valid After 10 Years?

If a prenuptial agreement is too old, then a court may not honor its terms completely. It's encouraged to modify or update the terms every five years to help re-affirm the previous agreements. If there is a failure to do so, a judge may look at these terms as stale and outdated.
