A prenuptial agreement, also commonly referred to as a "prenup", or premarital agreement, is an agreement lawfully entered into between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage.
While a prenuptial agreement often includes financial agreements regarding a potential end of the marriage, a prenuptial agreement may also address other areas of interest.
Ronald L Sims, P.A., represents the legal rights and goals of those involved in prenuptial agreement, divorce, or other family law issues or disputes in Orlando and the Central Florida area. For a confidential legal consultation, please call 407.843.5885.
Premarital (or prenuptial) agreements may include issues such as:
- The rights and obligations of each of the parties in any of the property of either or both of them whenever and wherever acquired or located;
- The right to buy, sell, use, transfer, exchange, abandon, lease, consume, expend, assign, create a security interest in, mortgage, encumber, dispose of, or otherwise manage and control property;
- The disposition of property upon separation, marital dissolution, death, or the occurrence or non-occurrence of any other event;
- The establishment, modification, waiver, or elimination of spousal support;
- The making of a will, trust, or other arrangement to carry out the provisions of the agreement;
- The ownership rights in and disposition of the death benefit from a life insurance policy;
- The choice of law governing the construction of the agreement; and
- Any other matter, including their personal rights and obligations, not in violation of either the public policy of this state or a law imposing a criminal penalty.
After marriage, a prenuptial agreement may be amended, revoked, or abandoned in a written agreement only, and signed by the parties. The amended agreement, revocation, or abandonment is enforceable without consideration.
If a marriage is determined to be void, an agreement that would otherwise have been a prenuptial agreement is enforceable only to the extent necessary to avoid an inequitable result.
Regarding the enforcement of a Prenuptial Agreement, it is not enforceable in an action proceeding under the Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure if the party against whom enforcement is sought proves that:
- The party did not execute the agreement voluntarily;
- The agreement was the product of fraud, duress, coercion, or overreaching; or
- The agreement was unconscionable when it was executed and, before execution of the agreement, that party:
- Was not provided a fair and reasonable disclosure of the property or financial obligations of the other party;
- Did not voluntarily and expressly waive, in writing, any right to disclosure of the property or financial obligations of the other party beyond the disclosure provided; and
- Did not have, or reasonably could not have had, an adequate knowledge of the property or financial obligations of the other party.
If you require professional legal services regarding prenuptial agreement, divorce, or other Family Law issues, be proactive in protecting your legal rights by seeking the legal advice of experienced legal counsel.
