A pre-nuptial agreement can always be modified but it requires the consent of both of you to do so. Pre-nuptial agreements are not usually modified but are often challenged if the parties end up in divorce proceedings because generally one spouse has given away valuable potential assets or claims in the pre-nuptial agreement.
