PRE & POST-NUPTIAL AGREEMENT

Newly Wed Couple

Pre-Nuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement, commonly known as a prenup or premarital agreement, is a legal contract made between two individuals before they get married or enter into a civil partnership. It outlines the rights, obligations, and distribution of assets in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement allows couples to establish clear expectations regarding the division of property, debts, spousal support, and other financial matters, providing financial protection and minimizing conflicts in the future.

In Florida, a well-written prenuptial agreement must meet certain requirements to be considered valid and enforceable.

Post-Nuptial Agreement

A post-nuptial agreement, also known as a postnup or post-marital agreement, is a legal contract entered into by a married couple after their wedding. It outlines the division of assets, liabilities, and potential spousal support in the event of a divorce. While prenuptial agreements are made before marriage, post-nuptial agreements are created during the marriage. 

 

It is worth noting that while post-nuptial agreements are generally enforceable in Florida, the court has the authority to review the terms and may choose not to enforce provisions that are deemed unjust or against public policy.

To ensure the validity and enforceability of a pre and post-nuptial agreement in Florida, it is recommended to consult with an experienced Family Law attorney who can provide guidance based on your specific circumstances and legal requirements.
