Prenuptial & Post Nuptial Agreements

People choose to enter into these agreements for a variety of reasons. Often one or both spouses have substantial assets proper to the marriage or wants to protect the property rights of children from previous relationships. You should consult with a marital agreements lawyer in Orlando for legal advice that is specific to your situation.

Florida law has specific requirements for a prenuptial agreement, including:

  • The agreement must be in writing
  • The agreement is only enforceable if the couple is legally married
  • The document is signed by both parties
  • The agreement cannot contain any provisions that are not permitted by Florida law

A post-nuptial agreement is essentially the same as a prenuptial agreement, except that the couple is already legally married before signing the agreement. The marital agreement contains information about the rights and obligations of each spouse for specific property, such as who gets to own the property, who is responsible for paying debts on the property, and other issues. Florida law imposes an additional condition for post-nuptial agreements. Each spouse must provide full financial disclosure in the agreement.

Setting Aside Marital Agreements

In some cases, a judge may decide to set aside a marital agreement. This may happen in situations where both parties agree to set it aside, one party acted fraudulently, one spouse did not sign the agreement voluntarily or signed under duress, or the court determines that something in the agreement is not reasonable or legal. Many of these situations can be avoided with the right representation from the beginning.
