Attorney Moe DeWitt of the DeWitt Law Firm explains Postnuptial Agreements in Florida.
A Post Nuptial Agreement is an agreement between spouses entered into after a marriage. It is a voluntary contract that spouses can use to address issues of conflict between them. A postnuptial agreement can remove disagreement between spouses over assets, children, and finances and can help strengthen a marriage.
To be enforceable, a postnuptial agreement must meet certain criteria. These include full financial disclosure, lack of duress in creating and signing the agreement, and it must be fair to both parties. Each spouse must have his/her own attorney when entering into a postnuptial agreement, which helps make the agreement an arms length transaction and prevents later claims of duress or coercion.
