Decide alimony and property based on interests and concerns, not emotions
In the midst of a divorce, individuals sometimes act out of hurt feelings or strong emotions rather than what is really needed or important to them. by discussing with your spouse or partner the things that are important to you in advance of any period of strife, you can both make reasonable, rational decisions that truly meet your needs. You can, for instance, use a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to hold on to certain real or personal property that is personally meaningful or especially important. You can also decide whether alimony will be paid in the event of a divorce, including how much and how many alimony payments will be made. You can fashion prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in any way to meet both your needs and expectations, such as providing for different kinds of alimony depending on the length of the marriage, or no alimony after a marriage of a certain length.
Protect your children born of a previous relationship
Persons entering a marriage when they already have children may be apprehensive about protecting their children’s inheritance. With a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, you can make provisions to protect your children. Additionally, a prenup or postnup can include a spouse’s waiver of the right to take an elective share under Florida probate law. the agreement could also require taking out a life insurance policy of a certain amount and naming a certain beneficiary or beneficiaries. Prenups and postnups allow you to craft your relationship in a way that meets your needs, so that a new spouse knows he or she is not cut out of the estate, but at the same time protecting children from a prior marriage.
Make sure you know what you’re getting into
Are you a saver or a spender, and what about your spouse? Fighting over money is a major cause of stress in a relationship, and a leading cause of divorce. a hallmark of the prenuptial agreement process is receiving a full disclosure of a person’s assets and debts.
