Florida Marital Agreement Attorneys

Creative & Experienced Lawyers Helping You Strategize a Favorable Agreement

Marital agreements are some of the most important legal documents you will create for your marriage (or separation). Even if you and your spouse are on great terms, it is still in both of your best interests to establish certain terms of your marriage, such as how you will share your assets or how you might distribute them in the event that you separate. Our lawyers at Moore Rabinowitz Law have more than 80 years of combined experience helping couples in the South Florida tri-county area create strong marital agreements. We take a results-oriented and strategic approach to ensure that the language of your contract meets your interests and needs.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Creating a prenuptial agreement is a good idea for any couple that is planning to marry, as this type of contract establishes specified details on the decisions that must be made in the event of a divorce. Primarily, prenups are used to determine the parameters of property division. A prenuptial agreement can also include information on the payment of alimony, if that is something that you and your spouse wish to include.

Prenups cannot determine child custody or child support, however, as these decisions are based on the child’s best interests.

A postnuptial agreement operates the same as a prenup, except postnuptial agreements are created and assigned after a couple marries. In other words, if you did not create a prenup, you can create a postnuptial agreement to determine these details instead.

Marital Settlement Agreements

A marital settlement agreement, also called a divorce settlement agreement or property settlement agreement, is a legal contract that sets forth the terms of separation for a couple looking to divorce.

Settlement agreements may address divorce disputes like:

  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • The division of marital assets and debts

Marital settlement agreements allow divorcing parties to negotiate their own terms of separation, rather than defaulting to a court’s decision. However, they must still be submitted to the court for approval, after which the court may incorporate the terms into the final divorce judgment. 

There are several benefits to settling a divorce with a marital settlement agreement. For one, you and your partner retain control over the outcome, as you negotiate your own terms for highly consequential matters like child custody. You know your situation better than the court, who may make a default decision if you cannot agree. Another reason that settlement agreements are advantageous is that you come up with the stipulations yourself, so you may feel more satisfied with the terms than with an often-impersonal court decision.
