What Is an Antenuptial Agreement?
More commonly known as a prenuptial or pre-marital agreement, an antenuptial agreement sets clear expectations for the two people as they enter marriage and protects both in the event of a divorce. They can also establish parameters in the event of the death of a party.
Under the right circumstances, antenuptial agreements are advantageous in many situations. However, a lop-sided or hastily drafted prenup can work against you or lead to litigation down the road.
What Are the Benefits of a Prenup?
Properly crafted, the prenuptial agreement declares which assets belong to the individuals (separate property) and which assets will be considered marital property after you wed.
If you bring your own home, business, or inheritance to the marriage, then these assets are protected in the event the marriage does not work out and you end up getting a divorce. The prenup will prevent these assets from being divided as "marital property."
Many people entering a second or subsequent marriage sign premarital (also known as "antenuptial") agreements to protect their own assets as well as the inheritance rights of any children from a previous marriage.

Our Miami-Dade prenup attorneys can negotiate and draft your agreement or review and revise your current agreement. If we draft the agreement for you, the initial step is to compile a list of your assets. Next, we will discuss your goals for the agreement. Lastly, we will draft a prenup that expresses your goals and present it to your future spouse for review.
Because of the length of the process, you should start the process as early as possible before the wedding date. This gives you and your attorney the opportunity to properly safeguard your interests. Call (305) 853-9161 or contact us online!
