Prenuptial & Cohabitation Agreements

Sarasota, Florida, Prenuptial Agreement Attorney

Considering a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement certainly does not mean you believe your relationship will ultimately fail. In our experience, the most common purpose of such a contract is to put to rest financial and social concerns, perhaps even enabling your relationship to flourish.

Please contact us if you need a lawyer who will draft an agreement that suits your specific needs. We have the business acumen to accurately describe diverse assets, as well as the analytical ability to help you document your wishes in proper legal terms. Our experience in divorce litigation and estate planning is an additional asset for anyone needing cohabitation or prenuptial agreements.

Establishing Future Property Division and Other Important Issues

A wide range of considerations may contribute to your decision to develop a prenuptial agreement, including:

  • Major differences in wealth, property and assets the two parties will bring into the marriage
  • A desire to protect the interests of children from a previous marriage
  • The wish to reach prior agreement on specific aspects of potentially complex property division, or on other future considerations such as rights to spousal maintenance (alimony) in the event of divorce

The financial concerns of people entering a matrimonial relationship are shared by others entering or continuing serious relationships. As attorneys dedicated to serving all people with family-related legal needs, we can assist in the development of:

  • Cohabitation agreements for homosexual or heterosexual couples who want to establish their separate rights to property
  • Reconciliation agreements for divorced couples who get back together but do not wish to remarry
  • Other types of specific agreements to establish ownership rights before purchasing a home or other major asset, for people in gay, lesbian or other domestic partnerships
