Important questions to ask a marital agreements lawyer

When preparing to wed, many people have a number of questions about how they can and should protect their wealth from loss due to divorce. In fact, some people are so concerned about the matter that they feel overwhelmed and are unsure how to proceed. They know that they need the assistance of an attorney, but they are not sure what types of protections are available with a prenuptial agreement. It can be helpful to create a list of questions to present to a Florida marital agreements lawyer in the interest of making the most of an appointment.

Prenuptial agreements may help plan for divorce in Florida

Many Florida residents may find planning for the possibility of divorce useful. It is not unrealistic to consider that a marriage will not last forever, as numerous couples choose to end their relationships every day. In fact, planning tools, such as prenuptial agreements, can help interested parties address property division and other areas long before the need arises. 

A marital agreements lawyer can help protect inheritance

When it comes to protecting an inheritance from loss during property division, it is important to take a proactive approach. That means securing the services of a Florida marital agreements lawyer as soon as possible. By crafting a thorough prenuptial agreement that specifically addresses an inheritance, it is possible to ensure that the assets that are handed down from one generation to another are used in the manner that was intended, and not lost during an unexpected divorce.

A marital agreements lawyer can answer questions on debt

Many Florida residents have questions about how student loan debt is treated during a divorce. The answer is not as simple as many people believe, which is why it makes sense to consult with a marital agreements lawyer prior to tying the knot. No one wants to be saddled with someone else's student loans in the event of a divorce.

Florida Nirvana fans won't believe this divorce twist

Many readers are aware that Francis Bean Cobain (daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain) is heading for divorce court. What some Florida residents may be shocked to learn is the extent to which the young woman's husband of not even two years feels should be his as part of the divorce. The case serves as an example of the importance of having a solid prenuptial agreement in place and of taking an aggressive legal stance in protecting one's interests during a divorce.

Florida residents shocked by Johnny Depp divorce allegations

Most readers know actor Johnny Depp from his role as Captain Jack in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise. Depp has had a long and successful career, often choosing quirky roles. Depp has also become well known for his rocky personal life; while the actor was married briefly in his early 20s, he has gone through many high profile relationships since. When he married model and actress Amber Heard nearly two years ago, many Florida fans were surprised. Now, it appears that Heard is claiming domestic violence as part of her reasoning behind filing for divorce.

One more reason for Florida residents to consider a prenup

A great many readers are familiar with the hit television show "Big Bang Theory." The female star of that show, Kaley Cuoco, has made recent headlines over her divorce from her husband Ryan Sweeting, a professional tennis player. During that divorce, Sweeting sought a portion of Cuoco's sizable fortune. Her rock-solid prenuptial agreement, however, prevented him from prevailing, which should serve as a lesson to all Florida residents who are preparing to wed.

What makes a prenuptial agreement stand up in court?

Prenuptial agreements have become an important component of marriages in Florida, particularly when it will not be the first marriage for one or both spouses. But the prenup isn't legally airtight, it may be challenged in divorce litigation, particularly if they fail to meet the basic requirements under Florida's laws for contracts.
