At Klein Law Group, our postnuptial agreements attorneys in Boca Raton can offer you peace of mind through the creation of a postnuptial agreement between you and your spouse. This agreement provides you with the opportunity to address issues with a spouse related to the division of property and division of assets in the event of a divorce or death, prior to a contentious event occurring that can result in a lengthy and difficult legal process.
Postnuptial agreements are similar in intent to prenuptial agreements, with the primary difference being that the agreement is entered into following a marriage rather than prior to a marriage. The purpose of an agreement is to specify the rights of each spouse in relation to the division of individual and joint property, as well as spousal support, should the marriage end due to divorce or death.
Each party entering into a postnuptial agreement should be represented by trusted legal counsel, and all aspects of the agreement should be clearly expressed, explained and agreed to by both parties. The agreement must be made in writing and must be executed voluntarily by each party. Postnuptial agreements, once created, provide each spouse with the knowledge of what to expect should the marriage end.
Postnuptial agreements can protect your interests in the event of a divorce or death of a spouse. They are generally entered into following a change in financial or family circumstances and can provide peace of mind for both parties because they clearly stipulate what will happen in the event that a marriage ends. Our attorneys in Boca Raton are conveniently located, providing compassionate, yet tenacious legal guidance and representation for individuals interested in preparing an agreement.
