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.
