Tampa Divorce Lawyer Gary Dolgin Explains That An Agreement Between Parties Is Not Always Approved By The Court

In divorce, just because the parties have reached an agreement, it does not mean the agreement is always enforceable or will be approved by the court.

For example, parties cannot waive entitlement to temporary alimony or attorneys’ fees by antenuptial agreement.

An antenuptial agreement is subject to the existing laws of the state, including the requirement that Spouse A is responsible for supporting Spouse B while they are still married. See Belcher v. Belcher, 271 So.2d 7 (Fla. 1972)

Similarly, any agreement to waive child support would be unenforceable for public policy reasons. See Quinn v Quinn, 169 So.3d 268 (Fla. 2d DCA 2015)
