When one or both members of a couple entering marriage are bringing significant assets to the table, a prenuptial agreement is always a wise consideration. There is unwarranted public stigma surrounding prenuptial agreements, stemming from an incomplete understanding of all the things that a prenuptial agreement can cover. A well-crafted prenuptial agreement can truly strengthen your marriage by predefining some boundaries that can simplify many of the problem areas married couples encounter.
Divorce is not an easy process. In fact, for many people, it is one of the most difficult life events they will ever experience.
When it comes time to put all of your personal possessions on the table, figure out how much they're worth and split them up, most people associate it with death -- because that is what happens during the probate process after we die. Unfortunately, though, in some circumstances we have to endure this kind of financial examination while we're still alive -- and it happens during divorce.
There isn't much of a downside to having a lot of money and property, and most Florida residents will agree that having a large bank account helps make life easier -- unless, of course, you are in the midst of a high asset divorce. When it comes to asset division and divorce proceedings, the more assets you have, the more complicated the divorce process becomes.
Divorce is hard. It can be emotionally upsetting because there are so many issues to be dealt with. It can become overwhelming. Five specific areas you need to be aware of are as follows:
Florida is a beautiful place to live. Sunny and warm most days of the year and great atmosphere. But, like all states, no matter how lovely the weather, divorce is a fact of life for many. Of course, if there are large assets and property involved, this high asset divorce may not be as expedient as you want it to be.
Getting a divorce is always a drag, no matter what state you live in. In Florida, even though it is sunny and warm outside, the fact that you have to get a divorce may leave you cold. It doesn't matter if you live in Miami or Tallahassee, you are subject to the laws as those in other states.
Getting a divorce is never fun and it seems the older you get and the longer you are married, the more complex it becomes. This is the case for an 87-year-old man. His wife of 15 years got a divorce from the man after he developed the symptoms of dementia. She was awarded $9.75 million. The children of the man agreed to this amount.
When getting a divorce in Florida, there are statutes that govern how and even the reason for the separation. You have to understand that Chapter 61 of the Florida Statutes covers divorce in this state. Reading through the first section can be a real eye-opener.
When you are getting a divorce, not only are you emotionally vulnerable, you are financially vulnerable as well. The law office of Thompson Family Law, P.
