With the help of a divorce attorney, former couples will be able to maintain their strong relationship with their kids as well as protect their assets. In fact, to make sure that they will be able to keep their most valuables items, they can opt for a post-nuptial agreement which is done after marriage in case that they have decided to go separate ways.
Destin, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2015 -- Divorce is one of the after marriage issues that is hard to deal with. Aside from the emotional pain a person might experience and the great stress and pressure it may bring especially if there are kids involved, dividing the assets in equal portions is another nerve-wracking concern that has to be consulted with a divorce lawyer. Most people would think that when they undergo divorce, dividing the assets is as easy as cutting the pie in equal parts. According to Mr. Donald Witmyer, P.A., a divorce lawyer Fort Walton Beach Fl highly recommends, couples who are planning to divorce should consult a Niceville divorce attorney because these professionals know how to identify and evaluate personal and business assets especially if the worth of the assets varies.
Mr. Witmyer strongly believes that the division of assets should be addressed immediately because it undergoes a complex process. This process involves giving value to each and every property and items that the couple managed to accumulate in the course of marriage and have it split in half – not the same way the man in eBay did to his assets where he literally cut them in half and sell his shares online while the rest is sent back to his ex-wife. For instance, if the man owns a $50,000 worth of painting collections and his wife owns a jewelry collection worth $30,000 while both wants to keep their respective assets. With the big difference in worth, the wife will receive compensation from the man's collection of assets.
With the help of a divorce attorney, former couples will be able to maintain their strong relationship with their kids as well as protect their assets. In fact, to make sure that they will be able to keep their most valuables items, they can opt for a post-nuptial agreement which is done after marriage in case that they have decided to go separate ways. This post-nuptial agreement is the same with the prenuptial agreement where both parties will make a treaty with regards to how the properties they are going to accumulate in the course of their marriage should be divided. The only difference of postnup from the prenup agreement is that the contract in postnuptial can be drawn up anytime after couples got married.
The postnup agreement which is getting popular these days will help couples divide the assets equally and set out expectations on what will happen to their assets and finances once they call it quits. This is often drawn up by couples who are entering a second marriage so that they will be able to protect their assets and maintain the previous relationship with the children. For example, when a woman remarries, all of her existing assets will proceed to her children from the previous marriage in case her second marriage do not work out and went on divorce. And although this is not legal binding, it is best to consult a divorce lawyer about this because fraud or any misinterpretation of the postnup agreement could affect the contract's validity.
