Florida couples who are contemplating marriage are turning to prenups more often. One of the main purposes of these agreements is to outline who will receive what assets in the event of a subsequent divorce, and many people view them as unbreakable. However, certain factors can invalidate a prenuptial agreement.
In order for a prenuptial agreement to be valid, each party must give the other full disclosure regarding his or her assets. If one spouse discovers later that the other was not completely honest, the court may throw out a portion or all of the agreement. When it comes to the distribution of assets, an agreement may also be invalid if one party stands to gain a disproportionate amount of the assets.
