Should I sign a pre or postnuptial agreement?
Many people falsely believe that having
postnuptial agreements in place can herald an inevitable divorce. However, this is
not the case at all. In fact, these agreements can help protect you or
your spouse in the worst case scenario of an unexpected death. Furthermore,
your assets are important and having a plan in place may be able to protect
your best interests.
How long will my divorce take?
This depends on if your divorce is contested or uncontested. An uncontested
divorce can take as little as five weeks, while a contested divorce may
take months to be heard in court. The amount of time a divorce takes includes
how many assets and properties need to be agreed upon and divided, as
well as a number of complicated emotional issues. Having an experienced
attorney on your side can make the process move as swiftly as possible.
How will my assets be divided after my divorce?
If you have signed a pre or postnuptial agreement, you and your spouse’s
assets will be divided according to its terms. More commonly, however,
there is no agreement in place and your
assets and property will then be divided by a judge according to issues such as your economic circumstances, the
duration of the marriage, and the contributions of both spouses during
If I have custody of my child, can I move them out of state?
The answer to this question depends on the Final Judgment in your divorce.
Sometimes this document specifies provisions for moving and sometime it
does not. If your Final Judgement does not say anything on the topic of
moving out of state or even to a new county, it is in your best interest
to contact a Maitland family attorney to help you petition the court.
