How can I modify my prenuptial agreement?

If you are looking to modify your prenuptial agreement because you and your spouse’s lives have simply changed and you both agree that your prenuptial agreement should reflect that, obtaining a modification is a rather simple process. You will simply request a modification and sign an agreement that states both you and your spouse agree to that modification. However, if you are looking to modify your prenuptial agreement because of a more serious reason, such as because your spouse violated one or more terms of your prenuptial agreement, the process will become a bit more complicated, which is why you will need an experienced New Jersey family law attorney at your side.
