How can premarital agreements affect property?

On Behalf of | Jan 27, 2017 | Prenuptial Agreements |

Whether you are preparing to get married in the near future or are contemplating divorce, premarital agreements can have a significant impact on your assets and your financial future. As a result, it is crucial to understand how these agreements can affect property that you or your spouse own. In Lee County, and other Florida regions, there are many legal issues that can come into play regarding prenups. For example, someone may feel that they were forced into signing a prenup that was not fair, in which case they may want to review their options.

According to the Florida Legislature, premarital agreements may cover a number of issues related to property. For example, a prenup may address one party’s ability to use, sell, purchase or mortgage property. Prenuptial agreements may also address the leasing, exchanging and management of property. Moreover, a prenup can include stipulations concerning the disposition of marital property when one spouse passes away or a couple files for divorce.

If you are working through challenges related to prenuptial agreements, divorce or any other matters related to marriage, it is vital to make sure that you recognize your rights. While disagreements over prenuptial agreements can lead to strong emotions, it is essential for couples to try to reach a positive outcome, if possible. If you believe that your rights have been violated, you should not be afraid to come forward.
