Trustworthy Assistance With Marital Agreements

As second and third marriages have become increasingly common in today's society, so too has the use of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to protect the wealth of one or both spouses in the event that relationship does not endure. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is a contract that allows a couple to predict and determine the division of marital assets and debts, establish or waive support obligations and to protect children from a previous marriage.

At Gladstone & Weissman, P.A., we guide and counsel clients in negotiating and drafting prenuptial, postnuptial and separation agreements with two objectives in mind: to achieve our clients' goals and to avoid any negative legal and financial consequences in the event of divorce.

Compared to the cost of divorce litigation, a well-written prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is worth the money; it can save tens of thousands of dollars in future legal fees.

Protecting Our Clients' Futures And Finances

Regardless of the agreement involved, our law firm works to make sure there is full disclosure of income and assets so as to avoid future challenges to the agreement. We are diligent in our efforts to create valid and enforceable pre- and postnuptial agreements that effectively protect our clients' rights and interests.

Our attorneys utilize a full-service approach when drafting Florida prenuptial agreements. We review all concerns and address them in the agreement, including:

  • Assets brought into the marriage
  • Tax consequences of specific asset-division
  • Future disposition of marital assets
  • Estate planning concerns
  • Protection of family businesses or small businesses/enterprises
  • Minimizing attorney fees and litigation costs

Each variation on these contracts, pursuant to which marrying or divorcing spouses agree to conduct their most personal family and financial affairs, requires painstaking attention to detail and foresight. Whether an agreement is designated before, during or at the conclusion of a marriage, these agreements often become a central blueprint by which current or future spouses conduct their affairs for years to come.
