PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS


A Prenuptial Agreement, also known as a Premarital Agreement, is an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage. Pre-Nuptial Agreements may address issues, such as: ownership and management of property, during the marriage and post-dissolution of marriage; the establishment or modification of spousal support; and any other matter, including the parties’ personal rights and obligations, so long as not in violation of either the public policy of the State of Florida or a law imposing criminal penalty. However, child support cannot be waived in a premarital agreement. After marriage, a premarital agreement may be amended, revoked, and enforced.

MEDIATED SETTLEMENTS


Mediation is a process by which a neutral third-party hears each parties’ side and facilitates the parties reaching an agreement. In any proceeding in which the issues of parental responsibility, primary residence, access to, visitation with, or support of a child are contested, the Court may refer the parties to mediation. The benefit to mediation is that each party may speak candidly and avoid large costs associated with litigation.

MARITAL SETTLEMENTS

Settlement of a divorce or paternity case is less costly, reduces acrimony, and allows the parties to build a future for their children. It is best to schedule mediation as soon as it is reasonably appropriate. Why litigate? If you can agree, Settle! Prepare a Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA) with detail resolving all issues and all things that matter to you.

POSTNUPTIAL SETTLEMENTS

Believe it or not, you will have arguments. You need not file a divorce case or litigate to resolve and agree on things you wished were resolved in a prenuptial agreement. You can have an agreement with your spouse without a divorce case being filed. If you can agree and you have the information you need an experienced lawyer can prepare a postnuptial agreement.
