A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into by two people prior to marriage. Prenuptial agreements are becoming more common with every marriage in Florida. These contracts were once only used by wealthy individuals to protect their fortune in case of a divorce. Now, many couples who are getting married want a prenuptial agreement to protect their assets or to avoid paying alimony in the event of a divorce.

We will draft your prenuptial agreement and explain to you the best way to present the contract to your fiancé and to negotiate with him or her.
If you have been presented with a prenuptial agreement, we can meet with you and help you understand what you have been asked to sign. We will negotiate the terms of the agreement for you and help you keep your relationship in tact so you can move on to a happy marriage.

A postnuptial agreement is a contract entered into between a husband and a wife after marriage. Postnuptial agreements are used by married couples for a variety of reasons. A postnuptial agreement is a useful tool to changes the terms of your prenuptial agreement, allow you to enter into a contract that you wanted before you got married, or so you can live separately from your spouse with an agreement that sets forth the terms of your potential divorce.
Postnuptial agreements are treated like any other contract. We at Sejpal Law Firm, PA can help you prepare your postnuptial agreement, or review and negotiate an agreement that is prepared by your spouse’s attorney.
We want to help you negotiate your postnuptial agreement to include your thoughts and preferences, while at the same time helping you to maintain a positive relationship with your spouse. A married couple that has a postnuptial agreement may have a relatively quick and inexpensive divorce because their postnuptial agreement serves as the settlement agreement.
