Contesting A Prenuptial Agreement

As a law firm that has represented a significant number of high-income clients and their spouses, Lake Toback is uniquely adept at contesting and defending the enforcement of prenuptial agreements. Given the significant financial ramifications of prenuptial agreements, it is critical that you retain an experienced divorce attorney if you are involved in a dissolution enforcing a prenuptial agreement.

Illinois courts will generally enforce the provisions of prenuptial agreements when they have been validly drafted and executed. However, there are a number of ways that prenuptial agreements may be challenged. To determine if you may have a basis to challenge a prenuptial agreement, the following questions may be helpful:

  • Did each party make a full financial disclosure to the other party?
  • Did each party have separate legal counsel?
  • Was the prenuptial agreement validly executed?
  • Was the prenuptial agreement unconscionable (at the time the parties entered into the agreement)?

Illinois has adopted the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA). Our attorneys have a strong working knowledge of the UPAA and can ensure the protection of your rights. In addition to representing clients in divorce cases involving challenges to prenuptial agreements, our attorneys can draft and review prenuptial and postnuptial agreements on behalf of clients.
