Prenuptial / Premarital Agreement Attorney Aventura

Prenuptial or antenuptial agreement (Prenup) is a contract signed by the future spouses before the wedding, that outlines each party’s rights and responsibilities if the marriage ends in a divorce. It is counterintuitive for the couple to think about divorce when they are getting married, but it is an important legal step to be discussed before entering into the legal relationship of marriage.

When is the right time to consider a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement must be discussed between the future spouses well before the wedding date. The parties must have enough time to fairly negotiate the agreement and make any changes each party desires. Even if the parties do not plan to have a big wedding and just want to get married by a judge in a courthouse, it is still important to consult with a prenuptial agreement attorney as soon as the couple considers the possibility of getting married.

Prenuptial agreements

It is a common misconception that only wealthy individuals will benefit from a premarital agreement. However, many individuals can benefit from having a prenuptial agreement. For example, a young couple that anticipates having substantial career and financial growth or a person who has real estate or inheritance prior to the marriage. Also, a premarital agreement is a good idea if this is a second marriage for you or you are a grandparent and would prefer that your assets go to your children or grandchildren.

My fiancé/fiancée and I want to sign a prenuptial/ antenuptial agreement, what is the next step?

It is important to find a knowledgeable prenuptial agreement lawyer, who will represent you in the preparation of the premarital agreement. The prenuptial agreement attorney will draft the initial draft of the premarital agreement based on goals outlined by the client in the initial consultation. The initial draft is presented to the other future spouse or his or her attorney. While it is not required that the other spouse have an attorney, it is highly recommended in order for the prenuptial agreement to be enforceable in court if it is challenged in the event of a divorce. Both the client and his or her future spouse will be asked to gather financial documents that will be exchanged as part of the full financial disclosure recommended prior to the execution of the premarital agreement. The other future spouse (together with his or her attorney) will review the prenuptial agreement and suggest any changes. Once the negotiation process is completed, the future spouses will have a formal execution of the premarital agreement.
