What Is Included in Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements?

These agreements generally lay out the specific terms and conditions related to financial matters as to the rights and obligations of each party upon “separation, marital dissolution, death, or the occurrence or nonoccurrence of any other event.”

These financial matters can include:

  • Real property and assets.
  • Debts.
  • Earnings and income.
  • Investments.
  • Retirement.
  • Wills and trusts.
  • Spousal support/alimony. (This includes if it will be granted along with its terms.)
  • Life insurance. 
  • Inheritances for children from prior relationships.

They cannot include the matter of child custody or child support which must be handled according to Florida family law and approved by family court judges. However, you can get creative with these agreements, including terms as to timesharing for a pet, providing college tuition for children, or providing unique terms for alimony. 

These agreements can be challenged in court if they are found to have violated such requirements as execution through fraud, misrepresentation, or deceit, or under coercion or duress. It is best to have each party separately represented by an attorney who can thoroughly review the terms and conditions of the agreement to ensure that it meets all legal standards. 

Ocala Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyer 

While many people may view prenuptial and postnuptial agreements as contracts only needed for celebrities and the very wealthy, they can be beneficial in many ways for any couple. These contracts require full financial disclosure and exchange of information that allows each party to fully understand the other’s property, assets, and debts. The terms of the agreement can then be negotiated delineating each party’s rights and obligations regarding property division and other financial matters. Prenups are entered into prior to marriage and become effective upon the date of the marriage. Postnuptial agreements are written and become effective after the marriage has taken place. These agreements are similar in purpose and nature except for when they are written.
