Motion to Enforce Prenuptial Agreement in Tampa

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement made by a couple before they marry concerning the ownership of their respective assets should the marriage fail. During divorce proceedings, a party may move to enforce the prenuptial agreement so that it governs the distribution of the property and alimony. If the motion to enforce is awarded, the terms of the prenuptial agreement are ratified into a final judgment of dissolution of marriage. If any other issues remain, such as regarding timesharing, parental responsibility, or child support, they must be tried in the normal course if the parties are unable to agree to them.
