Prenuptial or premarital agreements can be a good thing for couples to have in place in the event the marriage should come to an end. A prenuptial agreement allows each spouse to establish personal property rights prior to the beginning of the marriage. Having a formalized agreement in place prior to the marriage can save you a lot of time and money down the line.
Prenuptial agreements can also be used to resolve issues like spousal support and other considerations in advance. They are extremely detailed documents that should be reviewed by a lawyer before being signed. At the Law Office of Michael C. McGinn, P.A., based in East Tampa and Brandon, Florida, I help clients write and review comprehensive prenuptial agreements.
Both spouses are required to disclose all assets prior to signing a prenuptial agreement. Failure to do so may render the entire agreement invalid. I have experience helping clients make sure that consider all income, assets and property when creating a prenup. I have also represented clients who needed to fight the validity of an agreement due to lack of disclosure or other issues.
Many couples think that drafting a prenuptial agreement indicates a lack of faith in their future spouse or in the relationship. To the contrary, I believe that there are many cases where a prenuptial agreement can be give both spouses peace of mind, particularly in situations involving second marriages, a large inheritance or business ownership.
