Prenuptial agreements often get a bad rap, because of how they are depicted in movies and on TV shows. But for people who enter into a marriage with significant assets, a prenuptial agreement gives them the power to decide which of those assets to protect in the event of a future divorce.
But not every prenuptial agreement will stand up to close, legal scrutiny, and if you’re going through a divorce, there are some effective ways to challenge the conditions of this type of contract.
Although a person with wealth has the right to protect his or her assets prior to a marriage, a prenuptial agreement must follow certain legal rules. And some of the common strategies to challenge this agreement include:
Are you trying to challenge a prenup in your divorce based on conditions you know were unfair or illegal when you signed? Then you need an experienced law firm to represent you, because even if things go well in terms of settling all major issues, you are still going to be left with picking up the pieces and moving on with your life. That’s why one of the biggest decisions you will make in a divorce is finding the right law firm to represent you. A lot of attorneys trumpet their years of experience, but what good is experience if it isn’t backed up by a demonstrated track record of success? Can the law firm you are thinking about hiring show you what it’s done for other clients? Does the firm have testimonials of people you can actually talk to about their experience? The Estevez-Pazos Law Firm has more than a decade of experience in family law and divorce cases. Please call us today at 305-717-7130 to see how we can help you.
