Can prenups address the death of a spouse?

If you are expecting to tie the knot soon, you may have questions about various marriage issues, such as the location of your wedding. However, if you have been asked to sign a prenuptial agreement, it is essential to develop an understanding of your rights and familiarize yourself with the issues these agreements cover. In Lee County, and other places in Florida, these agreements can have a significant impact on your life if you and your partner decide to split up for any reason. Moreover, they may affect you in other scenarios, such as the loss of your spouse's life.

The Florida Legislature says that prenuptial agreements, which are also known as premarital agreements, may lay out how property will be distributed upon the death of a spouse. Dealing with the loss of life can be incredibly challenging for those who survive, but financial problems and stress related to prenups can make this difficult time even harder for some. As a result, it is important for you to look ahead and take all matters into consideration if you are being asked to sign a prenuptial agreement which covers death, or are interested in asking your fiance to sign a prenup that covers this issue.

In addition to passing away and filing for divorce, prenups may also have an impact on you if other significant life changes take place, as outlined in the contract. You should also bear in mind that this blog post is not to be seen as any type of substitute for legal advice.
