Concluding 6 Ways to Dispute a Prenuptial Agreement, here is a continued discussion regarding two more ways that divorcing spouses may be able to get prenups thrown out of family court. If you have questions about a prenuptial agreement or need any assistance with a divorce, the Lonetree divorce attorneys at Bahr and Kreidle are ready to meet with you.
Additional ways to dispute the validity of prenuptial agreements can include arguing that:
- The prenup contains clauses that are not valid – While prenups can include terms for the division of property, businesses and other assets in the event of a divorce, there are some specific issues that these agreements cannot legally cover (such as, for example, future child support payments).When prenuptial agreements contain one or multiple illegal clauses, it’s possible to argue that the entire agreement should not be held up in court. In these cases, family courts may choose to either dismiss the invalid clauses while upholding the rest of the agreement or to throw the whole prenup out of court entirely.
- The prenup is based on false or incomplete information – In the event that a prenuptial agreement is based on false information or partial information (such as false or partial information regarding one party’s assets), this contract may not be valid in court.The key to this method of disputing prenups usually lies in being able to prove that one party was aware of the fact that he or she was providing false or incomplete information at the time the agreement was entered into; this may be possible through proof such as bank statements, insurance policies, email correspondence, etc.
