Mandell, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, has helped clients throughout Florida protect themselves and their assets from the consequences of a divorce. We can answer your questions so you can make informed decisions about your future.
Understanding The Benefits Provided By Prenups
Understandably, some people are intimidated at the thought of signing a prenuptial agreement. It has the stigma of a “what if” mentality. When you’re getting married, it makes sense that you don’t want to appear to doubt your partner. However, the benefits of these legal documents far outweigh the negatives. We can help guide you in the right direction and address any concerns you may have in regard to family law. Some of the issues you can spell out in your prenup include:
- How you want marital property to be divided in a divorce
- What should happen to business interests owned by one or both spouses
- Who will receive any equity in the marital home
- What happens with any retirement accounts
- How to properly divide debt that may have been accumulated during the marriage
Reaching a common ground while you are both on excellent terms, as opposed to discussing your options while going through a bitter divorce, is the best thing you can for yourself. By clearly listing out who gets what, you can enter your marriage with peace of mind. We are here to make sure both parties are heard. Simply put, it is an important conversation to have regarding your future.
