Are Prenuptial Agreements Drafted In Other Countries Enforceable In Brooklyn Divorces?

While US courts make every effort to ensure consistency and rationality when it comes to contracts originating in foreign jurisdictions, prenuptial agreements are an area where there is some confusion today.

Generally speaking, a lawfully drafted prenuptial agreement that meets basic standards will be accepted by Brooklyn courts, but avenues for challenging prenups have increased through recent precedents.

If your prenuptial agreement was fraudulently conceived, signed under duress, or signed when you were not legally competent to make such a decision, you may be able to challenge it.

If you lacked proper representation that could explain the terms of the agreement to you, it may also be unenforceable here.
