Is Common Law Marriage Legal in Florida?
Common law marriage is a concept that has become increasingly popular in recent years but can be difficult to understand. In the state of Florida, common law marriage is not legally recognized. This means that couples who have been together for an extended period of time without being formally married must still obtain a valid marriage license if they wish to share the same legal benefits that come with marriage.
Although this may seem inconvenient, it can actually protect couples in the long run by allowing them to make important decisions about their rights and finances with more clarity. Common law marriage might be an attractive option for some couples, but in Florida it just isn't an option at all.

In addition to helping couples draft premarital and post-marital agreements, our staff also offers advice on:
- Negotiating the terms of the agreement
- Improvements in a proposed agreement
- The validity of an existing agreement
