Postnuptial agreementThis article begins a discussion on the differences between completing a postnuptial agreement and obtaining a divorce in Melbourne and other Florida areas. I consider this an important topic to write on as many individuals are unsure as to what their best option is if they are splitting from their spouse. Whether to choose a postnuptial agreement or a divorce will depend on one’s specific circumstances. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will help people to better understand their options. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you or a loved one require assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.

I will be addressing multiple topics over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:

  • Why Florida residents may choose a postnuptial agreement over a divorce
  • The pros and cons of postnuptial agreements
  • The pros and cons of completing the divorce process
  • The need to retain an attorney to assist you

I have chosen to address these particular topics for multiple reasons. First, residents may wish to utilize a postnuptial agreement if they have reasons to remain legally married, though they intend to be effectively split from their spouse. Also, a postnuptial agreement can protect the rights of spouses who are considering divorce but are not yet sure whether they wish to end their marriage. Second, while a postnuptial agreement can serve several purposes, it must be remembered that such a document is only a contract which must be enforced as part of a divorce. On the other hand, and third, a divorce allows one to end their marriage and to obtain necessary Court Orders. Finally, retaining an attorney to assist you can help to ensure that your matter is handled correctly.

An important point that I will stress in each of these articles is that it is important to retain counsel in order to ensure that your rights are protected. Without legal protections, one may find that they are liable for the acts of their spouse while living apart. These responsibilities can include having to pay debt, negative impacts on one’s credit, and more. As a Melbourne divorce lawyer I am familiar with such matters.
