LeBron James and his high school sweetheart and mother of his two children, Savannah Brinson, are officially engaged. News agencies are reporting James popped the question on New Years Eve at the Shelborne Hotel in Miami, Florida. The happy news comes after a long courtship of sixteen years.
I hope the best for the couple and wish them a lifetime of happiness together. However, I can’t help but hope James’s legal team is on top of making sure a prenuptial agreement is in place in case of an unfortunate divorce. You can never be too cautious. Prenuptial agreements are all too important for the rich and famous and really anyone looking to protect assets in a divorce.
In Jacksonville Beach and all of Florida, premarital agreements are governed by Florida Statute 61.079. This statute is often referred to as the “Uniform Premarital Agreement Act”. Under this act a premarital agreement is defined as, “an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage”.
