Can a prenuptial be dismissed because he lied to the attorney and me saying that the house was his?

You need to have this reviewed by an attorney. Just because he is still paying for the house may not mean the deed isn't in his name. Fraud could be grounds for nullifying a prenup but you would have to prove it was fraud.

Generally, any agreement can be ruled invalid if one of the parties fraudulently induced the other to enter the agreement. There are specific elements to this type of claim and can be very difficult to prove.
Without more facts I can't give a clear answer. It appears your husband had bought a house with a mortgage before the agreement was made and simply wanted to make sure it remained his, subject to the mortgage, in case of a divorce.
If you are planning to divorce, you should consult a family attorney to discuss the impact of the agreement.
