Even if, at the time of signing the agreement, the parties were relatively equal with respect to separated property, one spouse may have agreed to give up a career or educational opportunity to care for the children or household and for the other spouse to pursue a career or degree. After a few years, the spouse may not have had the opportunity to develop professional skills at home and does not have a higher degree, which leads to a reduction in work capacity. At the time of divorce, he or she has little fortune because of the prenup. In such cases, a court may consider subdividing the spouses and/or allocating the property on an equitable basis it has defined, ignoring the pre-enforcement provisions. We understand how unpleasant it can be to get a marriage contract while planning a marriage, and we are here to help our clients by explaining the process, the law and establishing a marriage contract that they feel comfortable with.
