Premarital agreements are agreements made in contemplation of a marriage. These agreements can limit rights and obligations of a marriage. The Fort Lauderdale Law Firm of Rebekah Brown-Wiseman recognizes that marriage is a big commitment. Life always carries uncertainties. A premarital agreement can help provide some structure of what to expect in the unfortunate event of a divorce.
Negotiation and communication which are the foundation of a healthy marriage work well in preparing a premarital agreement. The Law Office of Rebekah Brown-Wiseman, P.A. represents clients' best interest in Broward County and Palm Beach County, Florida while offering suggestions beyond the "all or nothing" approach, which can alleviate everyone's concerns. For example, a couple may know that they want to have children and the future wife will stop working until the children are in elementary school. The groom-to-be may be concerned about paying alimony if the marriage does not succeed and the bride-to-be may be concerned about leaving her employment. There are numerous options beyond a complete waiver of alimony / spousal support. Options can include a designation of a predetermined amount of years of marriage required before the wife can request alimony; alimony can be waived unless a child is born to the marriage; a predetermined amount and/or type of alimony can be established based on specific pre-determined criteria; and/or a designated housing allowance can be pre-established. If you are considering marriage and either you or your future spouse desire a prenuptial agreement, contact the Law Office of Rebekah Brown-Wiseman, P.A. to review your options to protect your assets and future interests.
