Prenuptial agreements can help you avoid expensive and protracted litigation should your marriage end in divorce.
A significant percentage of marriages end in divorce. Whether you are entering your first
marriage or have previously been married, a prenuptial agreement is a crucial planning tool that can protect your and your family's financial future. Prenuptial agreements are especially important for high net worth individuals, business owners, people with children from previous relationships and people who may be set toinherit or otherwise come into money during the marriage.
Entering into a prenuptial agreement has positives and negatives for both parties. It
serves to bring clarity to division of marital and non-marital property. However, it can deny a
spouse certain financial rights that they would otherwise be entitled to under Florida Law, such as spousal support, contributions to financial accounts during the time of a marriage and attorney's fees. At the Law Office of Gloria Gonzalez, we are here to walk you through the steps of the prenuptial agreement.
Prenuptial agreements should be done in a sufficient period of time before a wedding. To avoid later claims of coercion in the signing of the prenuptial agreement, each party needs time to contemplate and negotiate the terms of the Agreement fi necessary. A full and accurate financial accounting must be provided to the other party at the time of presentation of the Agreement or you run the risk of your soon-to-be ex-spouse from seeking to invalidate the Agreement based on this crucial component. That is why you need the help of an experienced attorney to help protect your rights and Attorney Gloria Gonzalez is here to help you in all aspects of the process.
Prenuptial agreements are often held to be unenforceable by the Courts. At the Law Office of Gloria Gonzalez, we will work with you to create a Prenuptial agreement that is tailored to your unique circumstances and is properly drafted to contain all of the details to ensure that the Prenuptial is held to be valid by the Court, should divorce litigation later arise.
