Post-Nuptial Agreements in Tampa
A post-nuptial agreement is a written agreement executed after a couple gets married to settle the couple’s affairs and assets in the event of a divorce. Most divorces end when the parties enter into a marital settlement agreement that is entered by the court into a final judgment of divorce. A full post-nuptial agreement may include resolution of timesharing, parental responsibility, equitable distribution, alimony, child support, and attorney fees. Even if a divorcing couple is unable to agree on all of these matters, they may enter into partial agreements regarding the issues on which they can agree. Only the remaining issues are tried in court. While post-nuptial agreements are most often used when a couple is divorcing, happy couples may also enter into them after they are married but before any issues arise so that in case they do decide to end their marriage one day, they know what will happen.
