Are Prenuptial Agreements From Other States Enforceable In Queens Divorce Cases?

A properly drafted prenuptial agreement from another state is likely to be enforceable in a Queens divorce case. There are exceptions though, and recent precedent that suggests that courts here won’t always allow a particularly lopsided prenuptial agreement to govern the terms of a divorce.

If your prenuptial agreement was drafted fraudulently, such as by hiding assets that should have been disclosed in it, then you certainly have grounds to challenge it.

Additionally, if you signed a prenup without your own legal representation, or you signed under duress or through coercion (which the court may interpret very broadly), a prenup may not be considered valid.
