I will be getting married in Florida. I am now a permanent resident in TN. Can my fiance and I do the
prenuptial in FL? and will it be valid in our home state of TN?
It will likely be valid in Tennessee so long as it satisfies the Tennessee requirements for such a document. If you were signing in Florida it will also need to satisfy Florida requirements. Whether you want to apply Tennessee or Florida law will need to be clearly set forth in the agreement, or else Florida law, as the law of the signatory forum, will control. Probably would have it done by a Florida attorney and just run it by Tennessee attorney for comment.
