Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Protect Your Assets with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

More and more frequently, one or both of the parties contemplating marriage have acquired significant assets prior to the marriage. When this is the case, many individuals and couples choose to protect their assets and minimize conflict in the event of a separation or divorce with a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement.

There are many complex issues involved in the drafting of a prenuptial agreement, and it requires full financial disclosure—including income, expenses, property, and debts—by each individual. Our Jacksonville family law attorneys at the Law Office of Stephanie Gurrola PLLC can listen to your concerns, advise you of your options, help you to prepare your financial disclosures, and create an agreement that meets your needs and wishes.

Call us at (904) 674-3177 now to begin working on your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

What Does the Prenuptial Agreement Cover?

A prenuptial or premarital agreement is a contract between a couple designed to protect the interests or assets each party brings into a marriage. A postnuptial agreement serves the same purpose, but it is created after the legal union has already been established.

These agreements may dictate rights, division, or obligations relating to: ​​​​​​

  • Property or financial assets
  • Alimony or spousal support
  • Retirement plans or pensions
  • Proceeds of life insurance policies
  • Business interests

There are certain rights that cannot be effectively eliminated by a prenuptial agreement. For instance, a prenuptial agreement cannot determine or affect child support or custody, as these arrangements must be calculated or approved by the court at the time of a divorce or separation.

Creating a Legally Binding Document

As of 2007, Florida courts use the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act (UPAA) as a guideline for ensuring the legality and enforceability of prenuptial agreements. Among other requirements, the document must be signed voluntarily by both parties, both parties provided full disclosure of their financial circumstances, and the agreement is not unconscionably lopsided or unfair. At the Law Office of Stephanie Gurrola PLLC, our family lawyers in Jacksonville have extensive knowledge of Florida family law, and we are here to help you draft a prenuptial agreement that is fair and enforceable.
