In order for pre-marital agreements to be allowed and maintained, they must comply with Florida laws. Marital and successor contracts have many requirements, the first of which stipulates that the agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. Like all treaties, agreements must be concluded voluntarily, that is, without violence, coercion or pressure. In addition, both parties must have been aware of the full disclosure of the potential spouse`s finances. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that „general disclosure“ is sufficient, meaning that a potential spouse cannot deliberately misinform or conceal information about their finances, affairs, or income. In the first place, a marriage contract cannot renounce family allowances, nor can it set an amount for family allowances.
