If you are engaged, you may have a wide variety of questions with regard to tying the knot. For example, you and your spouse may be discussing whether to move, the number of children you plan on having, where your wedding will take place or any other matters related to marriage. However, prenuptial agreements can be an especially difficult discussion and it is crucial that you make the right decision. At Fried and Fried, P.A., our law firm understands how contentious prenups can be for both parties in Lee County, and all over the state of Florida.
When deciding whether you should sign a prenup, it is essential to make sure that the contract is fair and that your interests are protected. Regrettably, some people rush into signing prenuptial agreements or are pressured by their partner to sign a prenup that is not fair. In these cases, courts may decide that a prenuptial agreement is invalid, which is why both sides should agree to a prenup that is equitable.
Prenups can lead to disputes between couples as well as financial and emotional issues. As a result, each party should discuss the agreement before signing and do everything in their power to ensure that it is does not contain anything unfair. If you believe that you were coerced into signing a prenup, you should carefully consider any legal options that may be on the table.
