A closer look at the benefits of having a prenuptial agreement

For many Florida couples who are celebrating the excitement of their engagement and anticipating their upcoming wedding, the idea of drafting a prenuptial agreement is often uncomfortable. Often, discussions about this type of agreement are associated with contention and stress. However, if people understand the benefits of writing and implementing a prenup and are committed to going about it in a positive way, they can create an agreement that is designed to protect each other's future in a way that is civil and void of unnecessary drama.

Moving after a divorce

Many people know how divorce can be financially disastrous, create emotional issues, and affect families. That said, people may be able to limit the extent of the difficulties they experience by planning ahead carefully. Moreover, it is important to remember that many other issues can arise with the end of a marriage, such as the need to relocate. Sometimes, a previous relocation could lead to a divorce, while others may move for better opportunities or as a way to find a new beginning after their marriage has come to an end.

Protecting your assets the simple way: Postnuptial agreements

A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement except for that it's created after you're married. A postnuptial agreement is beneficial for a number of reasons. First, you can create it if you have a feeling things might not work out in the future. Second, you can protect your assets even after you've gotten married. Third, you don't have to have a prenuptial agreement, which could take some pressure off on your wedding day.

Domestic violence charges and the internet

We have been over so many domestic violence matters on this blog, but there are additional areas of concern to address. You probably know how serious domestic violence charges are, especially if you are a victim of this offense or you have been accused of intimate partner violence or abusing your kids. For people on all sides of these situations, including victims, parents, and the person filing charges, stress and uncertainty is not uncommon. In the digital age, it is also important to look over some of the ways that domestic violence charges affect people online.

Reviewing postnuptial agreement parameters

Leading up to your marriage in Lee County, you probably heard from a number of people that you and your fiancee should consider signing a prenuptial agreement. Many of those that we here at Fried and Fried, P.A.  have worked with were given the same advice, but did not see a need to heed it. They have since come to us asking the same question that you may now have: "Can I sign such an agreement after I am married?"
