Most Florida divorce attorneys will encourage clients to sign prenuptial agreements if the agreement accurately expresses the parties' intentions and if the agreement is not unfair to either party. Nevertheless, some prenuptial agreements turn out to be unenforceable for different reasons. Some agreements are unenforceable because the parties made a simple mistake, such as not signing the agreement until after they became married, and some are unenforceable because one party tried to take advantage of the other. In the latter situation, the enforceability of the premarital agreement could seriously affect the division of marital assets in the event the couple decides to get divorce.
