    Answered . Procedurally, you contest the claims by filing an answer to the complaint. You then need to file a motion to affirm the validity of the prenup. If it was made in accordance with New Jersey law, there was full disclosure of all finances, and it's not unfair, the court will enforce it. Note that under the statute you've got to file a motion to determine this before trial.
