What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

Many people are familiar with prenuptial agreements; however, postnuptial agreements do not typically receive as much attention as premarital agreements. A postnuptial agreement accomplishes the same goals as a prenuptial agreement, but the agreement is signed after the couple is married.

A postnuptial agreement can settle the same matters that a premarital agreement can address, including but not limited to issues related to:

  • Alimony or spousal support

  • Division of assets and debts

  • Child custody, support, and timesharing

  • Define non-marital assets and debts

  • Living situations during a separation

  • Agreements concerning property and other matters upon the death of either spouse

  • Death benefits from life insurance policies

It should be noted that agreements regarding child support, parenting plans, and child custody are subject to review by the court. The court will consider the terms in a postnuptial agreement related to children; however, the best interest of the child will be the deciding factor whether the terms in the marital agreement are enforceable.

What are the Requirements for a Postnuptial Agreement in Florida?

For a postnuptial agreement to be enforceable in Florida, the agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. Neither party may be forced to sign the agreement or under duress during negotiations.

Other reasons a postnuptial agreement may be invalid include failure to disclose all assets or debts; fraud; misrepresentation; and lack of legal counsel. Consult with an experienced North Palm Beach postnuptial agreement attorney can help ensure your agreement is enforceable under Florida marital agreement law.
