What Can I Put in a New York Prenuptial Agreement?

Your New York prenuptial agreement can cover a variety of conditions, including:

  • What property acquired during your marriage qualifies as separate (ineligible for distribution in the event of a divorce), and what qualifies as marital (eligible for distribution in the event of a divorce);
  • How the parties can choose to utilize property during their marriage, including rights to lease, sell, or buy property;
  • How the parties will handle the management and distribution of a family business (if they share one);
  • How the parties will distribute marital property in the event of a divorce;
  • How the spouses intend to handle alimony, including modifications for the duration and amount of alimony agreements.

What Can't My Prenup Include?

Prenups cannot include terms for matters that concern child custody and support.

Matters of child custody and support must be managed by the parents or the court as part of the divorce process. Since the court will always rule in the child's best interests and those interests may vary on a case-by-case basis depending on the circumstances of the child and the divorce, prenups cannot govern how the parents handle custody or support.

Additionally, the court may rule the prenup invalid if:

  • One of the parties signed the prenup under duress or due to blackmail or some similar condition;
  • One of the parties omitted details concerning their finances during the drafting of the prenup;
  • One of the parties was not given adequate time to evaluate the terms of the prenup;
  • The court considers the prenup unconscionable, meaning the terms of the prenup are grievously unfair to one or both parties.

Many prenups are declared unconscionable, especially if the parties' circumstances have changed notably since the prenup was developed. For this reason, consistently evaluating and updating your prenup is recommended.

At Letterio & Haug, we'll work with you and your spouse's representation to ensure you draft and implement a prenup that helps you protect your legacy.
