Prenuptial Agreement

If you are engaged or will soon marry, you should consider drafting a prenuptial agreement with your significant other. Prenuptial agreements are not just beneficial to wealthy couples; everyone can benefit from executing a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement can allow you to modify certain provisions of Florida divorce law to better fit your specific circumstances. A well-executed agreement will allow you to set forth the terms of the divorce, rather than a judge dictating the distribution of your assets and the amount of spousal support awarded. In addition, the agreement can eliminate the need for costly litigation over property division, alimony, and other contentious issues that typically arise when a marriage is dissolved.

Florida divorce law allows a prenuptial agreement to be broad and cover a wide range of potential issues that may arise in the event of a divorce. For instance, a prenuptial agreement can determine a party’s rights and obligations concerning each individual asset and debt, including the right to buy, sell, or use specified property; alimony payments; the disposition of life insurance proceeds; and many other important matters. However, Florida divorce law will not allow a couple to determine child support or child custody rights in a prenuptial agreement. Instead, the couple must follow Florida’s child support guidelines and custody statutes.

The prenuptial agreement is a legally enforceable contract, however, a Florida family law court does have the authority to overturn the agreement if it was not properly executed. In order to be legally binding, both parties must voluntarily agree to the terms of the agreement. In addition, both parties must provide an accurate and fair disclosure of their financial position, and each party must have an opportunity to review the agreement before signing it. If these conditions are not satisfied, a court may decide the agreement was executed under duress and void the prenuptial agreement.

rehabilitative alimony in Florida

Rehabilitative alimony in Florida is financial support intended to provide a former spouse with the opportunity to establish the capacity for self-support, proportionate to the standard of living during the marriage. The length of the marriage will play a factor in whether or not rehabilitative alimony is appropriate, but it is not dispositive. Instead, the focus should be on the impact the marriage had on the earning potential of the spouse seeking alimony.
