The things you can't put into a prenuptial agreement

If you plan to have a prenuptial agreement, you may be trying to think of what you want to include in it. What's almost more important to understand is what you can't have in it. While you may be able to define who receives what in a divorce, certain parts of your marriage or relationship can't be defined through the agreement.

If you've decided to get a divorce and are in a marriage with a high asset value, then you're probably looking into ways to protect your interests. If you have a prenuptial agreement, it may determine which assets you get and how to divide the property that has been purchased during your marriage. If not, then you may need to look into other ways of identifying your property and the value of assets you deserve in the split.

Changes in alimony and child custody could come to Florida

If you're marred for a significant amount of time, you may find that your attorney informs you about the ability to seek alimony.

These include alimony to bridge the gap, durational alimony, rehabilitative alimony, or permanent alimony.
