Miami Premarital and Post Marital Agreements Lawyers
Building on experience gained over many years of dealing with property, estate planning and tax issues, we frequently become involved in preparing and analyzing premarital and post marital agreements. We are able to capitalize on our extensive work in these areas when working with clients and other professionals in creating premarital and post marital agreements.
Premarital agreements, frequently referred to as prenuptial agreements, differ from post marital agreements, which are often referred to as postnuptial agreements, primarily in that premarital agreements are entered into by a couple before marriage, while post marital agreements are entered into by a married couple.
Miami Premarital and Post Marital Consultation Attorneys
Intense familiarity with the legal requirements necessary to assure that a premarital or post marital agreement withstands the tests of time, and helping clients determine the extent and value of the assets they own and those they expect to inherit or develop in the future, are skills we bring to premarital and post-marital agreements. Equally important, we are attuned to the sensitivities required to work with a future spouse and his or her counsel in developing premarital agreements that avoid discomfort and tension in a relationship that is just beginning.
Our clients ask us to develop such agreements due to a need to protect a family business and plan for situations where there are children by prior marriages. The South Florida attorneys at Cohen, Chase, Hoffman & Schimmel, P.A., are not matrimonial lawyers, and therefore do not handle divorce or child custody matters; however, we frequently consult with matrimonial lawyers to assist their clients in developing both premarital and post marital agreements.
In addition to preparing premarital and post marital agreements, we also assist in analyzing the tax and property consequences of marital dissolutions and assisting with the preparation of marital settlement agreements.
