Marital agreements are contracts that a couple can sign to protect their rights and interests during and after a marriage. They are a great way to ensure that your property, assets, and interests are safeguarded in the event of divorce or death. If not drafted properly, a marital agreement may be unenforceable in court.

At Bogle Law, we can help you draft an agreement that fully addresses your needs and interests. We are here to give your case the full attention and care that it deserves.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements in Florida
You may question the merits of a marital agreement or wonder how it could affect your relationship with your partner. However, in cases where couples have been married before, have children from previous marriages, or enter a marriage with significant assets or substantial debt, a marital agreement can provide clarity and stability for the future.
To stand up in court, a marital agreement must:
- Be typed or printed in black ink.
- Be voluntarily signed by both parties getting married.
- Contain a full and accurate disclosure of a spouse’s assets, income, property, and debts.
- Be free from any type of fraud, duress, or coercion.
Both premarital and post-marital agreements can be tailored to the couple’s unique needs and the circumstances of their relationship.
A comprehensive marital agreement may include provisions about:
- A spouse’s rights regarding property or assets
- Death benefits
- Inheritance for children
- Community vs. Separate property
- Related financial matters
- Spousal support
While an agreement about spousal support may be included, child support and child custody cannot be determined by a prenup.
