A prenuptial agreement, commonly referred to in Delray Beach as a “prenup,” a “premarital agreement,” or a “partnership agreement,” is a type of contact that couple who are contemplating marriage can agree to before tying the knot. It is a legally binding contract which gives the couple a chance to address a wide array of topics before they get around to saying, “I do.” The subjects of the prenup are broad, but generally, in Delray Beach, these agreements can cover the following:
In Delray Beach and throughout Florida, the state will impose several legal requirements for executing a valid prenuptial agreement of which you should be made aware. For instance, the agreement must be in writing, signed by both parties, and must be entered freely without duress or coercion. Also, there must be adequate disclosure exchanged between the parties, and the topics discussed in the contract must be legally valid. A prenup or postnuptial agreement lawyer in Delray Beach can help ensure that all these requirements are met.
“Postnups,” or postnuptial agreements, are like prenuptial agreements. However, postnuptial agreements take effect after a couple in Delray Beach is already married. That is to say; a postnuptial agreement is a partnership agreement that is agreed upon after the marriage takes place in Delray Beach. It is possible for a couple to agree upon a postnuptial agreement even if they already have a prenup or partnership agreement in place.
