Nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico in Pinellas County, Florida is Indian Rocks Beach, a city that just over 5000 people call home.
As a tale goes, the city supposedly received the name “Indian Rocks Beach” because a native medicine man was able to miraculously heal his chief with the warm waters of a natural sulfur spring that is believed to have once been located where Kolb Park is today.
Early settlers would comment that the natives were “on their way to the rocks” as they would observe them making their way to the spring.
Indian Rocks Beach is a place for fun and relaxation with its primary industry being tourism. The city welcomes thousands of heat-seeking individuals every year to its shores, with many older individuals choosing Indian Rocks Beach as their place for retirement.
Offering a New Lease on Life
With the freedom of retirement and the laid back atmosphere of this small city, many individuals see this stage as being a new lease on life. New friendships and romances bloom, many of which result in marriage. Regardless of how deeply in love a couple may be, every individual – particularly older individuals with a number of high-value assets – need to financially protect themselves with a thoroughly drafted prenuptial agreement.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
Some individuals choose to draft their own prenuptial agreement, but there are a number of benefits that come with seeking legal counsel while preparing a prenuptial agreement:
- An Understanding of State Laws
The laws that govern marriage in this country can widely vary from state to state. The laws that you are familiar with in the state of New York don’t necessarily apply to the state of Florida and vice versa. Unless you want to invest a lot of time and trust in your abilities to learn the ins and outs of this often complicated area of law, a family attorney is a worthwhile investment as he or she will ensure that your agreement meets state requirements and is actionable.
- Unbiased Legal Advice
In many situations, couples will both choose to have a separate lawyer to ensure that they both receive fair and independent legal advice. This is beneficial to the couple for two reasons:
- Courts are more likely to honor a prenuptial agreement that has had two independent lawyers assisting in the crafting of the agreement
- Each party is ensuring that he or she isn’t being taken advantage of
