Florida and the Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial or premarital agreement is “an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage to be effective upon marriage.” Florida Statute 61.079 governs premarital agreements. And it tells us that in Florida we can contract related to the property during a marriage –

  • the right to buy,
  • sell,
  • use or
  • transfer property,
  • the obligations of each party related to that property,
  • the disposition of the property if the parties separate and
  • more.

A premarital agreement can also control

  • spousal support,
  • the shaping of a will or trust
  • life insurance policies benefits
  • and so much more.

A premarital agreement may be able to affect child support, but parties must be careful not to negatively impact the support.

A premarital agreement can bring peace of mind during the tumultuous time before marriage. Our attorneys at Dunham and Ingram are able to sit down with you and draft an agreement that will protect you as you move forward with one of life’s most important decisions. Call us today!
