There can be. Prenuptial agreements can be set aside if the party seeking to do so can prove that the prenuptial agreement is invalid for some reason. Again, this is a very fact specific driven case and circumstance. Facts that can invalidate a prenuptial agreement are as follows: that it was signed under duress, one of the parties committed fraud or intentionally misrepresented his or her assets, or it was not signed or properly executed by both of the parties. If you’ve signed a prenuptial agreement but you suspect that it wasn’t valid for some reason, you should explain that to your lawyer and allow your lawyer to analyze and address the specific situation.
