Florida law generally allows enforcement of premarital (prenuptial) and postmarital agreements. There are certain provisions, however, that Florida law does not allow judges to enforce even if agreed upon by the parties. Careful drafting and execution of these agreements helps ensure their enforceability. Click here for the Florida statutes regarding premarital agreements.


Despite recent changes to the alimony laws, alimony remains complicated. Alimony can be durational, bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, or lump sum. The amount and duration of alimony is based on a need and ability to pay standard, with a formula setting the ceiling for amount and duration. Click here for the alimony statute.

Child Support

In Florida, both parents are responsible for supporting their children. Florida law provides a mathematical formula for calculating child support based generally on the parents’ income and the timesharing (custody) arrangement. Only in unusual circumstances may the court award a different amount than determined by the guidelines. Click here for the Florida statutes regarding calculating child support.

Dissolution of Marriage/Divorce
