What are common issues that come up when enforcing a prenuptial agreement?

Unfortunately, when the time comes to enforce a prenuptial agreement, tensions are usually running high. Spouses may dispute a variety of things, including:

  • Whether he or she was pressured into the prenup.
  • Whether one of the provisions is invalid. (Note: A judge can choose to enforce part of an agreement even if another part is deemed invalid.)
  • Whether the information exchanged before the marriage was false or incomplete.
  • That each person did not have his or her own prenuptial agreement lawyer to look out for individual interests.
  • That the agreement (or a part of it) is “unconscionable” or grossly unfair, even if both spouses agreed to the terms.
