Over the years, Mr. Iken has paid special interest in the development of agreements (antenuptials) and subsequent litigation. If you have an agreement that you would like to explore, please assess your chances of obtaining a very reasonable consulting fee. Mr. Iken is also proud of the careful attention paid to the development and development of marital agreements. A marriage agreement (“prenup”) is a contract signed by both spouses. The general objective of a prenupation is for future spouses to accept certain rules for the distribution of property and property in the event of death or divorce. For example, a couple may agree to waive support rights or set monetary policy limits for support. Some couples agree to exclude certain assets from marriage as property.

It could be a family property or inherited business. This means that in the event of a divorce, this property would not be subject to division. For a foreign marriage agreement to be valid in Florida, legal requirements must be met. First, the Prenup must be valid in the jurisdiction, when and where it was signed. Second, prenupation should not stand in the way of Florida`s public policies. Courts will use the “choice of law” doctrine to evaluate a foreign prenup with respect to Florida`s public policy. Entering a marriage is a life-changing event, and each party hopes it will last forever. However, divorce is more common than couples want, making marital agreements a necessity. For example, the American Psychological Association reports that forty to fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. In addition, the divorce rate is even higher for secondary or subsequent marriages.
