Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Enforceable Florida pre-nuptial and post-nuptial marital agreements

Why is a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement necessary?  Because there is uncertainty in all things.


Whether you are newly engaged  or celebrating your 5 year wedding anniversary,

having a legally sound prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is an invaluable document that will protect you,

your assets, and your family in the event of two major life events: death of a spouse during the marriage or divorce.


Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements are both written contracts that define what property is marital and non-marital, and how that property will be distributed upon death or divorce.  The primary difference between these documents is whether the agreement was signed by the parties before or during the marriage.

For prenuptial agreements,  the parties must allow a waiting period to pass after signing the agreement and before the marriage is solemnized to reduce the risk of the agreement being challenged on the basis of duress, coercion, or similar defenses.  In other words, a prenuptial agreement should be signed well before the date of marriage and before any significant wedding purchases are made. 

Once you have made the wise decision to obtain a pre- or post- nuptial agreement, our knowledgeable and skilled family law attorney can assist in drafting an agreement that is tailored to your situation. 

Protect your property, your family, and your legacy.
