Unconscionability: Invalidating your prenup

There are a number of reasons for a couple in Florida to sign a premarital agreement in Florida. One future spouse may have an existing business, both may already have significant assets or they may simply want to ensure that they start their financial life together on the right foot. Whatever the reason, it is important to ensure that it holds up in court if the marriage fails. According to FindLaw, one major mistake is creating an unconscionable agreement.

Fathers, custody issues and emotional pain

For fathers, divorce and the various family law matters that may arise can be challenging in many different ways. For example, financial difficulties that stem from spousal support, child support or the way in which a court decided to divide marital property may arise. However, these issues can also create strong emotions, such as depression or anger, especially when they involve children. If you are a father who is struggling through a custody dispute or fighting to secure your visitation rights, the Florida law firm of Fried & Fried knows how hard these experiences can be.
