Marital Agreements Explained
Posted on May 26, 2010 8:10am PDT
Many people have questions when it comes to
marital agreements. Perhaps the most pressing questions are "what are they?" and
"what do they do?"
Marital agreements are legally binding contracts that are signed before
or after two people get married. These agreements outlines the terms of
what will happen if one spouse dies, leaves or the couple goes through
a divorce. Marital agreements include provisions that pertain to the couple's
assets, property and income. They outline how property will be distributed
and essentially detail who gets what.
Due to the fact that marital agreements are legally binding and the laws
that surround contracts of this nature vary state-to-state, it is important
that people who are considering agreements in Florida speak with a
Jacksonville family lawyer.
