We're not rich; Do we need a prenuptial agreement?

Florida attorneys hear this question more often than ever during client consultations. Celebrity news stories usually have a thing or two to say about prenups, which piques the interest of non-celebrities and people without a great deal of wealth. These people, who are just like you and your intended, all wonder the same thing -- do they really need to sign a prenup before marriage?

Understanding Florida marital property law

Many Florida residents who have never experienced divorce know very little about the state's marital property laws. In an imminent divorce situation, this lack of knowledge can be a detriment, meaning those who have made the decision to split will want to learn about marital property division early on. A saving grace in many cases is that a divorce attorney can fill in any missing blanks to enhance a divorcing couple's growing knowledge about marital property law.

To seek alimony or not: A personal choice

Spousal support has remained a hot topic during the first five months of 2015 and everyone seems to have a valid opinion. While alimony is often a big issue when divorce is imminent, some dependent spouses in Florida may choose to forego spousal support. As with all aspects of ending a marriage, the question of whether or not to accept alimony is personal choice but here are two sides of the issue for those who have not yet made a decision.

Census numbers show grandparents with parental responsibility

Florida residents may be interested in some statistics about the prevalence of grandparents with parental responsibility in the state. Government statistics reveal some interesting facts regarding demographics, as well.

Conversations about prenuptial agreements awkward but advisable

The media reports regularly on celebrity marriages and divorces and the use of prenuptial agreements to determine the division of assets. However, any Florida couple considering marriage may want to deal with the sensitive issue of a prenuptial agreement before the wedding in order to minimize possible disputes in the event of divorce or separation.
