Defending Or Overturning Prenuptial Agreements

While a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may create a binding contract, it is also important to understand when it can be challenged or even set aside.

First and foremost, depending on how the document is drafted, it may not comply with case law/statutory law; it may also be written in a way that is not consistent with Oregon law. In these cases, it may be possible to pursue settlement that is more than what is indicated in a prenuptial agreement in order to avoid a protracted legal battle. In other cases, an agreement may be very unfair and written prior to certain life events that have occurred that have made the prenuptial agreement no longer binding.

If you are working to defend or overturn a prenuptial agreement, it is important to work with a lawyer who combines a comprehensive prenuptial/postnuptial knowledge with extensive litigation experience. Our firm has both.
