Hello,

Thank you for your patience and thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.

I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.

You may get married in Nevada easily. In Nevada a marriage license is issued the same day that you apply. You do not need to be a Resident of Nevada to be married. Florida must recognize your Nevada marriage. See this resource for more information on Nevada marriages:

The same is true for California. The license is issued the same day and you do not need to be a resident.

See here:

You do not need to get the license in Florida. You must get the icense in the State where you are getting married.

I hope the information I provide is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.

Please do not forget to give me a positive rating. It adds nothing to your costs but it helps me greatly. Thank you.

If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.

Good luck.

we would like to make a pre marriage agreement regarding property or anything we get during marriage and keep it as separate, is it possible in florida? with just a contract signed and validated with a notary is sufficient? do i need to hire a lawyer for this?
Expert:  Gerald-Esquire replied 6 months ago.

This is called a Prenuptial Agreement.

You can do it yourself. Here is an article that explains how and includes a sample form:

Here is a copy of the Florida Law on prenuptial agreements:

Good luck and Congratulations.
