Prenuptial Agreement

Massachusetts

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Is a prenuptial agreement legally binding?

I am planning to get married and I have been advised to consider a prenuptial agreement to protect my assets in the event of a divorce. However, I am unclear on the legal validity and enforceability of a prenuptial agreement and whether it can be challenged or overturned in court. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to help me understand the legal implications of a prenuptial agreement and ensure that my interests are protected.

Briana C.

Answered Apr 25, 2023

Judges in most cases honor and enforce (signed and notarized) prenuptial agreements between two spouses as long as both parties entered it freely and voluntarily and with full knowledge of one another financial circumstances, and the agreement is not "unconscionable." A prenuptial agreement may not be enforced if (1) either party signed it under duress or coercion or undue pressure (or, say, the night before the wedding), (2) the party seeking to enforce it did not truthfully and completely disclose their financial information, or (3) enforcing the prenup would leave one spouse so destitute that they could not meet their most basic living expenses (i.e., would be forced onto welfare). In short, the prenuptial agreement will be enforced if (1) all the procedural requirements were met at the time it was signed and (2) the terms are not unconscionable, taking into account the circumstances existing at the time of divorce.

Prenuptial Agreement

Texas

Asked on Apr 15, 2023

Can a prenuptial agreement be challenged in court?

I am recently engaged and am considering entering into a prenuptial agreement with my fiancé. We have differing financial backgrounds and I am concerned that the agreement may not be fair to either of us. I want to understand if a prenuptial agreement can be challenged in court and the conditions under which this could happen.

Nicole P.

Answered May 12, 2023

Texas calls prenuptial agreements "Premarital Agreements". These agreements, just like any other contract, can be challenged in court. A challenge to the agreement does not mean it will be found invalid, however. Surviving a challenge to the premarital agreement is primarily accomplished all the way back to when the agreement is drafted and executed. There are requirements or prohibitions for the agreement terms to be valid, which are too numerous to list here, but can be found in the Texas Family Code, chapter 4. In Texas, no consideration is required, but the Agreement must be in writing, and signed by both parties. It must be free from fraud and duress, and entered into voluntarily. It cannot be unconscionable, and the parties must provide a fair and reasonable disclosure of the property and financial obligations (unless waived). Enforcement of a premarital agreement falls under the Texas Family Code 4.006. Additionally, any provision that would adversely affect the support of children is going to be prohibited. Conservatorship and possession/access (custody and visitation) will always be determined by the Court under the best interest of the children standard, regardless of what may have been put into the agreement. The best way to survive a challenge is to hire a competent attorney to draft the agreement, ensure the agreement complies with the Texas Family Code, provide a fair and reasonable disclosure from both parties, both parties being represented by their own attorney when entering into the agreement, and ensuring the agreement is available for review far in advance of the wedding date.

Medical Agreement

Virginia

Asked on Sep 29, 2022

My daughter who is 20 left the house with a man who is 15 year her senior am I obligated to had over all her personal documents

She does have some medical issues that needs medical appointments one for her eyes and heart when she was born I had German measles and she needs constant care

Michael T.

Answered Oct 11, 2022

If she's fully competent, then at 20 years old she is entitled to make her own decisions about who she has relationships with. If you have documents that she needs to engage competent medical care, then, yes; she should have those documents. In theory, if she needed them badly enough, she could sue you for possession of the documents (it's called a replevin lawsuit). Withholding documents about her medical care in order to force her to obey you regarding her relationship choices could cause you legal trouble down the road. Not to mention the cost it will have to your personal relationship with her. You're better off in the long run making sure she gets her needed medical care and being there to support her if and when her relationship sours. Trying to hold her documents over her is not a good idea, either from a legal standpoint or a human standpoint. Good luck and I wish you the best.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
