Whether you are planning to marry your partner or have been married to your spouse for many years, a variety of stressful issues may arise, such as relocation and disagreements over how children should be raised. However, in Lee County, and the whole state of Florida, prenuptial agreements can be a particularly contentious topic for couples. At Fried and Fried, P.A., our law firm also knows that some people are pushed into signing unfair prenups, which may result in a number of negative consequences.
If you sign a prenup that is not fair, you may be affected in multiple ways. For starters, if you and your marital partner separate, you may be left with nothing, which can be very upsetting and make it even harder to move forward after a divorce. Furthermore, if you are the custodial parent of a child, these financial hurdles can make daily life even harder and you may have difficulty providing your child with the resources they depend on.
Aside from financial matters, unfair prenups can also lead to bitterness, strong emotions and interpersonal conflict. You should never feel obligated to sign a prenuptial agreement that you do not believe is fair and if you already have, you may want to review your options. In some cases, unfair prenuptial agreements are thrown out because one party did not have enough time to review the contract or it was unreasonable.
