Premarital and Postmarital Agreements: Protecting Your Assets and Future

Marriage is a celebration of love and unity, but it’s also a legal commitment that can have significant implications for your financial and legal life. At PGS Attorneys, we understand the importance of protecting your interests and assets, and this is where premarital and postmarital agreements come into play.

What are Premarital Agreements?

Premarital agreements are legal contracts that couples sign before getting married. These regulate how assets and financial responsibilities will be divided in the event of divorce or death.

In these agreements, issues such as property ownership, alimony, and asset protection in marriage can be addressed. Beyond providing financial security, they also serve to prevent conflicts and misunderstandings in the future.

What are Postmarital Agreements?

Postmarital agreements, on the other hand, are contracts that a married couple decides to make after the wedding.

Like premarital agreements, they regulate the division of assets and financial responsibilities. However, these are created after the marriage has already begun.

Similar to premarital agreements, postmarital agreements also address issues such as alimony and asset protection in marriage.

When are Premarital Agreements Recommended?

Premarital agreements are often recommended when one or both parties have substantial assets, children from previous relationships, or are entering their second or subsequent marriage. They are also advisable if one spouse owns a business or expects a significant inheritance.

In these cases, our law firm specializing in marital agreements can provide the necessary legal advice to safeguard your interests.

How to Create Premarital Agreements?

Creating marital contracts in Panama requires specialized knowledge of local laws and statutes. That’s why seeking expert legal advice on the matter is recommended.

First, both parties must fully disclose their assets and liabilities. Subsequently, with the assistance of our attorneys specializing in marital agreements, the agreement is drafted, ensuring it is fair and complies with all applicable laws. Finally, it’s crucial that both spouses have sufficient time to thoroughly review the agreement before signing it.

Both premarital and postmarital agreements require the approval of both parties in the couple. These agreements are legal contracts that must be signed voluntarily and without pressure or coercion.

In the case of premarital agreements, it’s crucial that both parties clearly disclose their income, assets, and liabilities. Additionally, they must be in writing, as oral premarital agreements are not valid unless backed by a physically tangible agreement. Regarding postmarital agreements, once signed, they are applicable from that moment forward.
