Florida divorce attorney Russell Knight releases a new article (https://divorceattorneynaplesfl.com/what-documents-do-you-need-to-give-your-florida-divorce-lawyer-to-prepare-a-prenuptial-agreement-in-florida/) discussing the documents needed to prepare a prenuptial agreement in Naples, Florida. The lawyer mentions that a prenuptial agreement may not always be the most important thing in a person’s mind when they plan to get married, but it is a very important topic to be discussed.
“Maybe you or your family has some fears- if the unfortunate event of divorce occurs, will your children from previous partners be protected? Will your family business be decimated? A Florida family law attorney or divorce attorney can help you create the best prenuptial agreement to fit your needs so you can have peace of mind about your upcoming marriage,” the Florida divorce attorney says.
The lawyer explains that anyone is technically able to write a prenup. However, the Florida courts will not recognize and enforce just any prenuptial agreements. There are certain criteria to be met. It is very important to make sure that the prenup that is drafted before the marriage is enforceable.
Attorney Russell Knight mentions that prenuptial agreements in the state of Florida are governed by state law. There are three conditions in the statute in which a prenuptial agreement will not be enforceable. These conditions are (1) the party did not execute the agreement voluntarily; (2) the agreement was a product of fraud, duress, coercion, or overreaching; (3) the agreement was not unconscionable when it was executed.
“The closer to the wedding date the prenuptial agreement is signed, the more likely a judge will say that it was signed under “duress.” Conversely, the more time between the execution of the agreement and marriage, the more likely it will be upheld by the court. We recommend executing the prenuptial agreement at least one month before the wedding and at a bare minimum, for two weeks,” says the divorce attorney.
Lastly, attorney Knight emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters such as prenuptial agreements. An experienced attorney may be able to help the client understand their rights and ensure that the agreement is enforceable.
