Are Prenuptial Agreements Valid in Florida?
Premarital agreements allow individuals to enter into a contract with their future spouse, which governs certain financial issues in the marriage and in any future divorce. In Florida, premarital agreements are governed by statute. If the parties have fully and fairly disclosed their assets, income, debts and other financial information, and the agreement is correctly drafted and signed, the agreement is most likely valid and enforceable.
Careful Drafting and Review of Prenups Is Essential
A prenuptial agreement can help avoid future disputes over the division of property in a divorce. It can also meet estate planning goals, such as ensuring that certain assets or property will be inherited by your children from a prior relationship.
While premarital agreements are generally enforceable in Florida, they can be challenged if they don’t meet certain legal requirements. That is why it is important to work with an attorney who has considerable experience in this area and knows what makes an agreement enforceable.
Terms of a prenup relating to spousal maintenance and the division of property and assets in a divorce will generally be enforced by the court in a future divorce. However, terms dealing with child custody, parenting time or the payment of child support will usually not be valid or binding.
