Do I Need a Prenuptial Agreement?

Prior to divorce, two people may be questioning whether they should truly get married or not, and whether their marriage will last a lifetime. When these two people decide to make this life-changing decision, they often desire a back-up plan that they can fall back on if their marriage fails.

Marriage is not a commitment that should be entered into without taking into consideration all legal elements involved. It is important to fully understand the marriage contract prior to signing. The marriage contract is a commitment and therefore, there are heavy consequences if divorce occurs.

Purpose of Obtaining a Prenup in Jacksonville, FL

At Charles E. Willmott, P.A., I can help you establish a prenuptial agreement that can protect your income, assets, and property in the case of a divorce. They are especially important in high net worth divorce cases because there is much at stake. These agreements protect those who do not wish to be taken advantage of by the other party. They also are designed to modify terms of a marriage contract in case the marriage does not work. Within the prenuptial agreement, it is important to discuss alimony, so that you are not forced to support an individual who has committed adultery.

Proposing the Agreement to Your Loved One

Many people are opposed to the idea of a prenuptial agreement and bringing up the topic could lead to anger, mistrust, and dispute. Some feel that it is taking a pessimistic approach to marriage, but if you feel the need to have a prenuptial agreement, there are ways to develop mutual agreement.

It is important to discuss the situation early on in the engagement while openly discussing the topic and your reasons for wanting the agreement. It is important to point out the benefits of a premarital agreement to your future spouse. As a seasoned divorce attorney, I have the experience and ability to help you draft an effective agreement that can work for both parties.
