Be Happily Ever Prepared with a Prenup Lawyer
A couple makes a prenuptial agreement before they marry. It is a legal agreement that pre-determines financial considerations such as asset division and alimony in the event that the couple divorces or one spouse dies. They are no longer taboo or reserved for wealthy couples. Creating a prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for anyone who has specific ideas about how assets should be divided if the unexpected occurs. A postnuptial agreement is a similar document that a married couple creates if they did not sign a prenup or if circumstances have changed. You should consult with a lawyer to provide guidance in creating your prenup or postnuptial agreement. Attorney Natashia A. Sinckler offers prenuptial and postnuptial agreement services in Royal Palm Beach, FL and the surrounding areas.
No couple expects to divorce, but unfortunately, a significant portion of marriages end this way. Signing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement doesn’t mean you’re planning for divorce. It means you want to plan ahead and avoid conflict if the relationship doesn’t go as planned. It is typical for each party to hire their own lawyer to advise them. The attorney will review the document and negotiate if necessary. Attorney Natashia will help you protect your interests and advise you throughout the process.

The Importance of a Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements can save couples time and stress if they end up separating in the future. It’s a way predetermine financial factors that are important to think about. These are some of the things a prenup can do:
- Protect Assets Acquired Before Marriage: Prenups generally state that assets brought into the marriage will remain with the person who owned it originally.
- Keep Assets in the Right Hands: If one spouse is more capable of taking care of a major asset like the family home or vacation home, the prenuptial agreement can ensure that it stays with them.
- Keep Business Interests Out of Divorce: If you own a business and want to protect it from being affected by future divorce, a prenuptial agreement may help you.
- Get Alimony Out of the Way: When one person enters a marriage knowing that they will be financially dependant on their spouse, they may want to create a prenuptial agreement to specify alimony. Alimony exists to provide dependant spouses with relief in the event of divorce.
- Protect You from Acquiring Unfair Debts: Does your partner have significant debt? Do they have poor financial habits that may cause them to acquire debt during your marriage? A prenuptial agreement can protect you from being responsible for a portion of that debt in the event that you divorce.
There are many other reasons to think about hiring a lawyer for your prenup. It can also determine things like access to retirement accounts and life insurance benefits in the event that one spouse dies. In many cases, it is better to have an agreement in writing ahead of time just to be safe.

Why You Need a Postnuptial Agreement
A postnuptial agreement is a legal document that a married couple signs. It determines agreements concerning their assets if they are to divorce. With prenuptial agreements, partners are not legally required to disclose all of their financial information to each other. This is because they are not yet married, so it can’t be assumed they have a confidential relationship. Postnuptial agreements, however, must reflect that both parties have fully disclosed their assets, debts, and financial affairs to each other. A postnuptial agreement could be overturned by a judge if it is shown that one spouse was deceitful in the agreement.
