Are premarital agreements enforceable?

The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties and is typically enforceable. The agreement will not be enforceable if the party can prove either that he or she did not execute the agreement voluntarily, the agreement was unconscionable when executed, and before execution of the agreement the spouse was not provided a fair and reasonable disclosure of the property or financial obligations of the other spouse, did not voluntarily waive any right to the disclosure of this information, and did not have adequate knowledge of these obligations. If a provision of the agreement modifies or terminates spousal support which causes that spouse to be eligible for public assistance, the court may order the other spouse to pay support.
