Port Orange, FL asked in Family Law for Florida

Q: Can two people getting married get a prenuptial agreement that states a simple 70/30 split if they both agree?

If divorce occurs in one state, does the marrying state influence the terms of divorce?

A: The prenuptial agreement can have any terms that both sides can agree to, even 70/30. Most of these agreements state if only one states' laws will apply. This would mean that despite you moving somewhere else, the laws of the state where you choose would be applied.

Good luck!
