Orlando Family Attorney

Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements

At Richard A. Heller, P.A., we strongly recommend creating pre- or post-nuptial agreements as an intelligent legal method of protecting our clients' futures, assets, and interests. The old stigma surrounding these agreements is gone. In today's world, couples recognize that a pre- or post-nuptial arrangement is not necessarily a sign of distrust but a smart organizational move. That's why, at Richard A. Heller, P.A., we support you in your decision to plan ahead for your future and to make arrangements that protect your estate and your loved ones should a "worst case scenario" occur.

A pre-nuptial agreement, or "prenup," is drawn up prior to the couple's marriage. This document simply defines and describes which assets belong to each party. Both you and your fiancé or fiancée will need to hire a separate lawyer to avoid potential conflicts of interest. In addition, it is important to remember that pre-nuptial agreements must be taken care of well in advance of the wedding ceremony in order to avoid the appearance that either party was pressured or forced into signing an agreement that wasn't fully reviewed or understood.

A post-nuptial agreement, on the other hand, is drafted after the marriage has become official. Like a prenup, this document serves to lay out what property belongs to which party. An Orlando divorce lawyer can help you make wise choices about what to include in your agreement. If you and your spouse have obtained joint assets since your wedding, you can define who owns what percentage of the property.
