  • Have children from previous marriages, and you would like to protect their inheritance.
  • Have business interests they wish to separate from the couple’s marital properties in case they divorce.

  • How will the properties be divided during a divorce, death, or other key events
  • Should spousal support be given, how much should it be, and how long should it last
  • How retirement plans and pensions will be distributed or used
  • How the life insurance policies should be distributed or used
  • Whether there is a need to write a will to enforce the agreement
  • Which state laws will be used to adopt the agreement

Premarital agreements do not include child custody and support arrangements as the court arranges them. The court will look into various factors that will focus on your child’s best interests, their relationship with both parents, and their needs. Should parents wish to make arrangements for these topics early on, they can do so during the divorce or separation. It will also be subjected to court approval.

Premarital Agreement Modification and Enforcement

Even after you get married, Florida allows couples to revise their premarital agreement at any time if there are any points they want to change. However, both parties must give written consent before any changes can be made. When consent is given, both parties must talk about the points that should be adjusted and agree on it before it can be legally modified. Parties can also contest the agreement’s validity at any time if one or both parties believe that the agreement has misrepresented or fraudulent points or was signed due to coercion and duress.

working on divorce contractWhen a premarital agreement is created or modified, the court will use the guidelines set by the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act (UPAA) to determine if it should be enforced immediately or not. The state signed the act in 2007 to help parties create an acceptable premarital agreement. It will be enforced in terms that they can agree with the court on standby to intervene if one party is placed in financial trouble when the agreement is enforced.

The court may invalidate the modifications or the entire premarital agreement if:

  • If one of the signatories signed involuntarily
  • One of the parties coerced, falsified, pressured, or used “overreaching circumstances” to get the other party to sign the modified premarital agreement.
  • The agreement was “unconscionable” because one of the parties did not get a full and honest disclosure of the other’s assets and financial obligations, did not voluntarily waive their right to disclose their assets and financial obligations, and did not get the right information about the other’s full assets and obligations.

When you speak to us at Miami Divorce Attorneys for these concerns, we can immediately get to work to help you write your consent for modification and ensure the modifications meet your needs. In turn, we can also help you protest against the modification or the entire agreement if you were coerced into signing it or if there are falsified points in the agreement. We can build the case to help you get the court to invalidate the agreement or avoid getting an unfair result if the marriage is annulled or voided.
