A prenuptial agreement is a written agreement or contract signed by parties engaged to be married, and it must be signed before the marriage. A postnuptial agreement on the other-hand is a written agreement or contract entered into by two married individuals and and entered into after marriage. The types of agreements can collectively be referred to as marital agreements.
Typically, a Florida marital agreement provides for what will occur upon divorce, separation or death with regard to mostly financial issues, such as division of property and debt, alimony or spousal support.
As one can imagine, these agreements must be handled delicately and with a good deal of tact. Diplomatic negotiations by competent counsel, such as those from the Farr Law Firm, are beneficial to assist the couple to move towards a well-adjusted marriage with clearly defined expectations.
