A prenuptial agreement is a type of contract entered into by individuals prior to marriage that sets out the manner in which specific financial matters will be resolved in the event of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements can significantly alter the rights of spouses, so it is critical that each spouse has knowledgeable counsel prior to entering into a prenuptial agreement.

Protect Your Rights
While Florida courts will enforce prenuptial agreements that comply with the law, a spouse may challenge the enforceability of a prenuptial agreement on many grounds. Factors that may impact the enforceability of a prenuptial agreement include:
- Financial disclosure: Each party should make a full financial disclosure to the other party.
- Opportunity for legal counsel: While Florida does not require that each party have separate counsel, it is best for parties to have separate counsel to avoid unnecessary challenges to the enforceability of a prenuptial agreement.
- Valid execution: The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
- Timely execution: The parties should enter into and execute an agreement in a reasonable and sufficient time prior to the marriage.
We encourage you to speak with a lawyer at our firm today to learn more about prenuptial agreements. We also assist clients with postnuptial agreements, which are entered into by spouses after marriage.
