I want to divorce my husband . He wants too. How can i protect my assets and do not give anything to him?

Asked 11 months ago - Miami, FL

I got my green card through him . I do not have anything under miy name except a car (fully paid) We both want to divorce but i want to make sure he does not have any interest in my assets before and after marriage. He is happy to sign any paper stating that , Is it enough or does he still have right to come after me in the future for money?

    Answered . Your question is confusing. It almost sounds like you want a prenuptial agreement and not a divorce. You want to make sure that he does not have any interest in your assets after the divorce just like he did not before the divorce? I think that is what you are saying. You really need to meet with a family law attorney because there are many more questions that need to be answered like: What is the length of your marriage? What are your respective incomes? Furthermore, an analysis of your premarital assets needs to be done to determine if anything has happened to change the non-marital /premarital nature of those assets. Good luck!

    Answered . you need to consult with a family attorney licensed in Florida. Generally the Court will agree to any arrangement that the two of you agree to -- a family law attorney can help you right up a suitable Marital Settlement Agreement and arrange the transfer of any titles.
