As a divorce is finalized, couples in Florida will often focus on dividing their property. This is something that couples can occasionally agree on, but many divorce cases have to go to court to find a reasonable solution. Things that could be considered include:
-- Bank accounts.-- Offshore accounts.-- Investments.-- Homes.-- Property.
As you can imagine, sorting through all of this can be difficult, especially if you are not sure who really owns what property. Depending on the length of the marriage, it can be difficult to keep this straight.
One thing that has to be considered during all of this is a prenuptial agreement. This could strictly dictate what must be done with property so that there is no room for debate. For instance, if you came into the marriage with a high amount of wealth in your own bank account, you may have insisted that none of it go to your spouse after a divorce. This this money will then be exempt from the division process.
This does not go only for wealth, but for all assets. It is crucial to look at prenuptial agreements to make sure that they are valid and that they contain only things that are allowed to be included. This generally means that financial matters can be included, but things like child custody cannot.
Do not go into a divorce without knowing what rights you have and how your prenuptial agreement is going to impact those rights. To learn more, please take a look at our main page on divorce, and you'll find that it is very informative.
