Concerned about getting divorced? A fair prenup can help

Moving in together, getting married, having children and other major events can happen during a relationship. Though these events are often ones to look forward to, they can also come with potential risks. For instance, individuals who are intending to get married could also one day get divorced, which is why many Florida residents choose to prepare.

One way that individuals could prepare for this type of scenario is to create a prenuptial agreement. However, prenups need to be fair and enforceable. In some cases, one person may create an agreement and expect the other person to simply sign it. In such a case, it is important that the person being handed the agreement thoroughly reviews it and considers his or her own best interests before signing.

It is not unusual for someone who anticipates losing a considerable amount during a divorce to push forward with a prenup first. Though the agreement is intended for protection, it could include terms that are not exactly fair to the other party. For example, the terms may indicate that the other party is not entitled to any spousal support, which could be detrimental to that party. As a result, before signing, individuals may want to have a legal professional look over the document.

When it comes to creating a prenup, both parties need separate legal counsel. Having a legal advocate can better ensure that no one party is favored in the agreement. This can be beneficial for both sides as it could prevent the prenup from being considered unenforceable later. As a result, if Florida residents are considering creating this type of document in case they get divorced, it is wise to have legal assistance.
