Helping Central Florida Individuals Create Marital Agreements As Part Of Their Estate Plans

The Benefits Of A Premarital Agreement

There are many benefits to signing a prenuptial agreement before getting married.

A prenuptial agreement can help avoid unnecessary litigation arising from disputes over possession of a home and other assets, or how either spouse should benefit from appreciation of those assets.

Most importantly, a premarital or prenuptial agreement protects ownership of everything you have accumulated before your marriage — and can serve to protect your possessions and child access rights in the event that your marriage fails or you pass away.

If you are engaged and considering a premarital agreement, speaking with a qualified attorney who can explain the law and how to carry out your wishes is recommended.

Safeguarding A Wide Variety Of Interests

I am attorney Michael G. Horton. At the Law Office of Michael G. Horton, I carry on the legacy of providing trusted estate planning services my father established in 1975.

I often assist couples in Clermont and throughout Central Florida with marital agreements as part of their estate plan in order to protect what's important to them in the event of a divorce or death.

I have safeguarded interests regarding many issues, such as:

  • Homestead rights
  • Spousal share or elective share
  • Spousal support
  • Division of property and marital assets in the event of divorce
  • Distribution of property to beneficiaries upon death

A marriage is a contract. If you want provisions of this contract to be a part of your estate planning in Central Florida, contact my office today.
