Florida residents may have seen a recent editorial in the Washington Post about a strange idea that may have merit for people who have already been through a difficult high-asset divorce or who, perhaps, just want to test the waters of marriage. The editorial suggests a new legal arrangement called a wedlease, which would be rather akin to signing a rental agreement.
Florida residents may have heard postnuptial agreements are on the rise. Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are completed once a couple is already wed. The agreements can cover a lot of ground, but they are often used to stipulate the potential division of assets and property.
Here in Florida, we are accustomed to seeing older couples migrating to the state to spend their retirement years basking in the warm and sunny climate. However, a recent survey from the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers suggests that a growing number of these older people may be setting up shop in our state all by themselves.
When you or your former spouse have made the difficult decision to end your marriage, you will probably experience a multitude of emotions ranging from relief and happiness to sadness and anxiety. However, once everything settles down, you may ask yourself how exactly you want to proceed with the divorce.
Now that the economy is finally improving, you may feel more confident about securing that promotion or embarking down a new career path. You may also feel more confident about selling your home, investing in the stock market or making that long awaited major purchase. Finally, you may even feel more confident about the idea of securing a divorce.
