Prenuptial Agreement Attorney in New Port Richey
Protect Your Marriage with a Premarital Arrangement
Many engaged couples consider prenuptial agreements to be unromantic as if you are planning for the demise of your marriage before it even begins. However, a premarital arrangement can actually safeguard your marriage and protect the rights of both parties.
There are many reasons to consider a prenuptial agreement:
- One or both spouses are bringing a large number of assets into the marriage
- One or both of you are professionals with high earning potential
- One party was previously married and needs to hold specific assets aside
- You have concerns about inheritance rights you want to address
A prenuptial contract can also help you ensure that the marriage is about the relationship rather than being about money. When you settle money and property issues in advance, both of you are free to focus on the relationship.
Creating a prenuptial agreement that holds up in court requires help from a skilled New Port Richey family law attorney. Contact Dale L. Bernstein, Chartered Law Office today at (727) 312-1112 for an appointment!
Can a Prenuptial Agreement be Overturned?
During a divorce, there is often conflict about whether the court should uphold the prenuptial agreement. If one party benefits from the arrangement, they will fight to keep it in place. The other spouse may be unhappy with how it divides assets or determines alimony, so they fight to overturn it.
The court should uphold a prenuptial agreement that you have drafted properly. If both parties had their own legal representation, everyone fully disclosed their assets and earning potential, and neither side suffered coercion, the document is generally considered valid.
If there was fraud or misrepresentation, the court might find the arrangement invalid. The courts may also overturn a premarital contract if one party threatened or intimidated the other into signing. The court will not overturn a prenuptial agreement just because one spouse is now unhappy with the outcome.
