Seeking Counsel for Pre & Post Nuptials? Protecting Your Rights Through a Personalized Approach

Miami Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreement Lawyers

Drafting Thorough Marital Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a document that discusses a variety of different subjects related to a marriage, including how assets will be divided if you should ever get a divorce. Engaged couples often begin discussing the possibility of drafting a prenuptial agreement prior to a marriage. Whether you have already decided to have one or you want to consult with a family law attorney about the benefits, our legal team at Mitchell & West LLC can help you. If you are already married and did not have time to secure a prenuptial, it is never too late to get started on drafting a postnuptial agreement.

Interested in discussing ways to protect your interests with a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement? Contact us at (305) 783-3301 to schedule your first consultation.

Benefits of Drafting a Pre-Nuptial Agreement

Although a prenuptial agreement may not seem very romantic, it is actually incredibly beneficial to couples preparing to get married. The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to help minimize disputes regarding property and asset division in the event of a divorce.

Prenuptial agreements can address the following issues:

  • Which assets and property were brought into the marriage
  • What will happen to marital assets and property in the event of a divorce
  • What happens to children from previous relationships
  • How alimony or spousal support will be handled in the event of a divorce or death

How Long Will a Prenup Last?

Like any other contract, a prenup will only last as long as the terms allow it to. If the couple does not specify the duration of the prenup, then it essentially can last forever because no state law dictates how long it should be. At the same time, a prenup isn't set in stone. It can be revoked at any time by completing a written agreement stating that the initial document is no longer in effect.

Can a Prenup Protect Future Earnings?

Yes, a prenuptial agreement can help protect your future earnings. Ensure that the written document explains in specific detail which current and future earnings will not be on the table if a divorce happens to be filed. On the flip side, future debts can also be avoided with prenups. Examples of this are when a spouse drives up credit card costs or unpaid student loans and then files for divorce shortly after.

How Does a Prenup Affect a Marriage?

There are many psychological effects that can occur when filing a prenuptial agreement, and they often can slowly corrode a marriage. It is critical that each party is in complete agreement of a prenup, as a one-sided agreement can be emotionally toxic for a relationship. This is why it is important to hire an experienced and trusted attorney to guide you through every step of the process. At Mitchell & West, we have helped many couples achieve success when completing both pre and post nuptial agreements. Call today to set up a consultation!

Do I Need a Pre-Nup or Post-Nup?

It is often said that only high-asset individuals or couples draft prenuptial agreements, but this is not the case. Having a thorough prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement in place can help you and your soon-to-be spouse feel at ease. You can rest assured that your finances are protected and that all your affairs are in order with a post-nuptial agreement.
