A prenuptial agreement is a contract that is entered into by the parties prior to their marriage. This contract will determine how certain assets or obligations, whether acquired before or after a marriage, will be divided should the couple decide to divorce. A prenuptial agreement is not required to marry in the state of Florida, but it may be beneficial to the party in the event of a divorce.
Not all obligations can be governed by a prenuptial agreement. For example, child support is the right of a child, thus this is an obligation that cannot be determined by a prenuptial agreement. Our Pensacola attorneys will work closely with you to determine what assets and debts can be properly to make certain your agreement is valid and can be enforced by the courts.
A postnuptial agreement is a contract that is entered into by the parties after a couple marries. This document generally protects individuals from the uncertainties that may arise if a couple decides to divorce due to the rights a person gains when they marry.
Unlike prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements require full financial disclosure. Under Florida statute, postnuptial agreements are void if one of the parties was fraudulent when entering into the agreement. Other acts such as duress and coercion also make a postnuptial agreement void.
