Apollo Beach is a small, unincorporated community in Hillsborough County in western Florida.
The community dates back to the early 1920’s, when the Dickman family owned the land and used it for farming and pasture. Back in 1923, much of the land was declared uninhabitable, due in large part to low elevation and dense mangrove population.
However, when the 1930’s rolled around, the Dickman family formulated the idea for a waterfront community that boasted a superior location between the more densely populated Tampa and Bradenton.
Over the course of the next 20 years, Apollo Beach grew into a residential mecca in western Florida. To this day, it remains relatively quaint, measuring less than 6 square miles in size, with a population of roughly 14,000 people.
While relatively small in size, Apollo Beach is home to a diverse population – more than 60 percent of which are married. That figure sets Apollo Beach far above the Florida state average. As a result, residents of Apollo Beach may require legal services when preparing to marry or divorce, including the drafting and upholding of prenuptial, or pre-marital, agreements.
Deciding on a Prenuptial Agreement
When deciding to marry, a couple may sign a prenuptial agreement for several reasons. The first is to define what should happen, in the event of the couple’s divorce. The second reason people sign this type of agreement is to define the course of action, should one spouse predecease the other during the course of the marriage. Some prenuptial agreements can be comprehensive, and include provisions for both situations, in order to protect their assets and interests for the future.
Making the decision to draft and sign a prenuptial agreement is an important one, and it carries a number of ramifications for couples in the future. Typically, couples decide to sign prenuptial agreements if their situation includes:
- A new marriage that includes children from a previous union
- A second or third marriage
- One or both spouses having previously been through a difficult divorce
- One or both spouses having a large net worth
- One or more spouses expecting a sizeable inheritance
- Both spouses want to clearly define their rights in the event of divorce or an untimely passing
In the state of Florida, prenuptial agreements require full disclosure of both spouse’s assets, incomes and liabilities, and must be executed without coercion, trickery or duress.
