"I’m Steve Kramer and I’m a Florida prenuptial agreement attorney. And today we’re going to be talking about prenuptial agreements 101. Now let’s start with the basic requirements.

One: the agreement must be in writing and it must be signed by both parties. That’s the husband and the wife.

Two: the agreement must make a full disclosure of assets and debts. It’s got to give a full disclosure of the financial position. If you hide the ball, if you hid assets or your spouse hid assets and wasn’t forthcoming when they turned over those financials, that agreement may be voided.

Three: everybody’s got to voluntarily sign it. And that means if you’re going to sign a pre-nup, it’s a good idea that both of you sit down with an attorney that way there’s no arguing about manipulation or undue influence or anything like that. So if you were the spouse that has the money and you were going to have your wife or husband sign off so that they can’t take half of your money if you wind up getting divorced in a year, well you might want to go ahead and send them to an attorney just to look over the agreement and make sure that they understand and voluntarily sign the agreement.

Now pre-nup can deal with all aspects of the marriage and it becomes effective when you get married. And the other thing that you need to know is that a pre-nup can be modified. And the final, most important thing is that a pre-nup can be voided. It can be disproven by one of the parties. So that means if you signed a pre-nup and you’re in the process of getting divorced and you don’t like what that prenuptial says because maybe you feel that you’re entitled to some of that money. Well, we can help you. We can go in and fight these prenuptial agreements and have them voided and we’ve done that. And we’ve seen a lot of bad prenuptial agreements. On the other hand if you were preparing the prenuptial agreement, if you were the one that wants to be protected, it’s important to do it the right way. And there’s other factors too and that’s why we’re here. If you want to sit down and go through your prenuptial agreement or what you’re looking for, we’re glad to do that. We’ve seen these from every angle and we’re glad to sit down with you.

Thanks for watching. I’m Steve Kramer."
