Marital Agreements Serving Families In Palm Beach & Surrounding Areas and Throughout Florida

Palm Beach Marital Agreements Lawyer

While most people hope for a lasting marriage, the sad reality is that divorce is common. While you can't prevent divorce, you can take steps to protect your property and your children through the use of a marital agreement. A marital agreement is a legal document that defines the rights and obligations of each spouse in the event of a divorce. It can also address other issues, such as how the couple will handle parenting and support matters, or how they will divide their property.

If you are considering a marital agreement, you should seek the counsel of an attorney with experience in marital agreements. At John F. Schutz, P.L., our Palm Beach marital agreements attorney can review your situation and help you determine the best course of action. We can draft a marital agreement for you or represent you in the negotiation of an existing marital agreement.

Drafting a Marital Agreement in Florida

There are no specific rules or requirements for drafting a marital agreement. The agreement can be drafted by either spouse or by an attorney on behalf of either spouse. The agreement can be very simple or very complex, depending on the circumstances and desires of the spouses.

Marital agreements are useful in many different situations. Some of these include:

  • To protect separate property
  • To protect the spouse who earns less income from having to pay marital debts and obligations
  • To define child custody and support matters in the event of a divorce
  • To plan for the division of property and debts, including the division of real property
  • To plan for the distribution of assets and debts if one spouse dies

Protect Your Assets with a Marital Agreement

A marital agreement can provide peace of mind and financial security for both partners in a marriage. Whether you are entering into a new marriage or looking to strengthen an existing one, a marital agreement can help protect your assets, property, and financial interests in the event of a divorce or separation.

Our experienced Palm Beach Gardens marital agreements lawyer can assist you in drafting a comprehensive and legally binding agreement that meets your specific needs and concerns. By taking proactive steps to address potential issues before they arise, you can avoid costly and contentious legal battles in the future.

Key benefits of a marital agreement include:

  • Protection of individual assets and property
  • Clarity and certainty in financial matters
  • Preservation of family inheritance and business interests
  • Reduced conflict and stress during divorce proceedings

"Genius divorce lawyer"

John Schutz is a brilliant lawyer. Not only did Mr. Schutz do an excellent job cleaning up the mess from the previous lawyer, he in my estimation was key in me ultimately obtaining a very good outcome. I had a very contentious divorce and the opposing lawyer was very unprofessional and somewhat abusive. Mr. Schutz through his professionalism and excellent people skills was able to reign in the opposing attorney's unprofessional conduct. Mr. Schutz ran circles around the opposing attorney as he was always prepared and was quick on his feet. He is well worth the money in my opinion. Due to his skill and the ability to outclass the opposing attorney, a trial was avoided which ultimately would have been far more costly. Highly recommend.
