Avoid the pain of learning your prenuptial agreement is invalid

A prenuptial agreement may not be something that many Florida couples believe to be a necessity. Often associated with the rich and famous, many people believe that they do not really need it because they do not have significant financial resources or a lot of money. In reality, it can be a beneficial step for every couple before marriage, regardless of income level. 

When drafting a prenuptial agreement, ensure that the drafting is correct and thorough. Otherwise, it could result in the court invalidating the entire prenuptial agreement, or at least part of it. In the event of a divorce and a dispute over the terms of the agreement, you will be thankful you were prudent and cautious.

Things to consider when drafting a prenuptial agreement

Mistakes and incorrect wording can both result in a serious threat to the original terms of your prenuptial agreement. It could be useful to understand some of the most common reasons why a court would invalidate this type of contract, which include the following:

  • One of the parties claims that he or she experienced pressure to sign the agreement.
  • The execution of the prenuptial agreement was not valid or correctly done.
  • One or both parties did not have time to consider the terms and understand the terms of the agreement.
  • One party did not read the prenuptial agreement.
  • The provisions included in the prenuptial agreement are invalid.
  • The prenuptial agreement contained incomplete or false information about one or both parties.
  • The prenuptial agreement is not in writing.

Divorce is a complicated time, especially as it relates to property division. While you are certainly not planning for your marriage to end before you even get married, a prenuptial agreement can provide protection for your property rights and financial interests. It is a smart step to take, no matter who you are or the assets you have. 

Safety and security for the future

It may not seem like a pleasant task to consider property division during your divorce before you get married, but it is a worthwhile endeavor to consider how you can effectively protect your future.

A simple contract can shield you from undue complications and other problems during a divorce, allowing you avoid litigation over certain issues. This can save you time, money and a significant amount of stress. If you are unsure of how a prenuptial agreement can benefit you, you may find it useful to seek a complete understanding of these types of contracts and the protections it can provide.
