Two Common Divorce Myths

Most people believe they grasp the law of divorce, without possessing a proven capacity to distinguish what is the truth and what is fallacy. Today’s blog post discusses some of divorce law's most popular misconceptions.

We’ll begin with prenuptial agreements which, contrary to popular belief are not necessarily always binding. There are several factors that need to be examined for the agreement to be deemed valid, including whether both parties fully disclosed assets and debts and if the agreement was signed voluntarily. If the prenup includes provisions that are illegal, such provisions may not be upheld.

In Florida, there are “grounds” for divorce. These may include but are not limited to reasons such as substance abuse, domestic violence, or adultery. However, if you pay attention to when couples file for divorce, you may have noticed that a lot of them end up citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the dissolution of marriage. Hence, they have chosen to move forward with a divorce that is no fault.
