For every marriage, there is a different set of circumstances and concerns. For many couples, a prenuptial or postnuptial (antenuptial) agreement can assure that both parties agree on how property and other issues should be handled and divided. To learn more about prenuptial agreements, talk to an attorney at the Heller & Heller law firm in Coral Springs, Florida.
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement establishes ownership of property and responsibility for debts and other matters.
A prenup can establish what property was owned before the marriage.
After years of marriage, it can be difficult to establish who owned what at the time of the marriage. If you have a business, a house, or other assets that you do not want to be co-mingled with marital assets, that should be carefully explained in a prenuptial agreement. A premarital agreement can also establish separate debts.
A postnuptial agreement can establish what happens from a given point in a marriage.
Perhaps because there is a chance of a divorce or perhaps because there is a concern about defining what is separate (like an inheritance or gift), a couple may want to draft a postnuptial agreement.
Many people approach marriage with a realistic concern about property and debts. If a business is involved, if this is a second marriage, if significant property or debts are involved or if the parties want to preserve assets for their children from a previous marriage, talk to a family law attorney about an agreement that meets your objectives.
