Entering into a prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for many couples intending to marry. It may provide for how marital assets are to be distributed in the event of death or divorce, and protect assets, income and inheritance plans for loved ones. A prenup is especially important for those with significant personal assets and children from previous relationships.

At Mr. Staab has 15 years of experience in helping his clients negotiate and prepare sound prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. From our offices in Weston, we represent clients throughout Broward and Miami-Dade counties in South Florida.

PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

Entering into a prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for many couples intending to marry. It may provide for how marital assets are to be distributed in the event of death or divorce, and protect assets, income and inheritance plans for loved ones. A prenup is especially important for those with significant personal assets and children from previous relationships.

We all know that life is unpredictable, and a prenuptial agreement gives people the opportunity to specify what will happen with their assets in the event of divorce or death. Moreover, modern couples should understand that a prenuptial agreement does not reflect unfavorably on one’s feelings for his or her future spouse.

A solidly written prenuptial agreement can protect assets you bring into
the marriage, such as:

  • Investments
  • Stocks, bonds and stock options
  • Investments
  • Inheritances
  • Primary and vacation homes

A prenup can also provide for spousal support payments and distribution of property should a marriage end; it can also
ensure that one spouse is not attached to any risky business ventures pursued by the other spouse. Deciding on these
issues when one is calm and clearheaded can help avoid stress and uncertainty, as well as lengthy legal
proceedings, in the future.

POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

As the name indicates, postnuptial agreements are created after a marriage has begun. When married couples have concerns about finances or asset protection, voluntarily entering into a postnuptial agreement can put an end to worry and anxiety by addressing one or both spouses threatened financial security. Like prenuptial agreements, they can provide the means of knowing exactly what would happen in the case of a divorce and how both spouses would be able to support themselves.
