Make sure your prenuptial agreement meets state requirements

Anyone who is considering a marriage needs to look into a prenuptial agreement. Some people might think that they don't need a prenup because they don't have a fortune or a lot of assets. If you are thinking that way, you need to think again. Prenuptial agreements can do more than just protect what you have now. They can give you the foundation for what will happen if you get a divorce. For example, you can outline how future inheritances would be handled if you divorce.

When you decide that you need to have a prenup signed, you must ensure that it is handled properly. We want you to know that you can't do like some movies portray and shove a prenup in a person's face minutes before you walk down the aisle. Instead, you have to present the prenup long before the wedding because the person has to have ample time to review it and consult with an attorney about the provisions.

Another factor that matters when it comes to prenups is that you can't force someone to sign it. Signing a prenup under duress would invalidate it. There are several other factors that can invalidate a prenup. We must ensure that your prenup is based on all the relevant facts or it can be invalid. We must ensure that it meets all the requirements of a prenup in Florida or it might be considered invalid.

We know that you don't want your prenup to be considered invalid if you end up getting a divorce. With that in mind, it is crucial that you take the time as early as possible to get the prenup written, presented, reviewed and signed.
