Documents to Give Your Florida Wills and Trust Attorney to Prepare a Prenuptial Agreement
Are you a resident of Florida? Is your wedding day quickly closing in on you? Are you beginning to wonder if now’s the right time to create a prenuptial agreement?
If you answered yes to these questions, there’s no better time than now to speak with a lawyer about the process of creating a prenuptial agreement.
Chapter 61 of Florida Statutes governs divorce proceedings, as well as the manner in which prenuptial agreements are enforced at this time.
Start the Process
The first step in creating a prenuptial agreement with your partner is discussing the details, pros, and cons. Both of you must be on the same page in regards to the terms and conditions.
Once that happens, turn your attention to the collection of all applicable documents. This includes but is not always limited to:
- Full financial disclosure
- List of assets
- List of debts
- Income information, such as pay stubs
- Tax returns
If you think it’s useful, it probably is. It’s better to provide your lawyer with more information than not enough.
The final step is hashing out the terms and conditions with your partner. Alongside your partner, your attorney and their attorney will help to push the process forward.
Since it can be stressful, you don’t want to wait until the last minute to take action. The more time you leave yourself, the more time you have to face challenges and uncertainty head on.
