If the partner agreed to pay spousal support if ever divorce happens at the time of marrying but later after few years if he doesn't want to pay for whole period but pay only for couple of years contrary to whats agreed on the marital agreement. Can the partner challenge already agreed agreement which is valid per all rules and signed in front of the lawyer and had enough time to think before signing.
Of course s/he can. The question is will s/he prevail? If you had a competent attorney draw up the prenup, s/he explained that to you both.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you private message me I’ll have no idea what you are talking about. Read my profile before seeking further advice.
In California, the requirements for Premarital Agreements can be quite onerous and specific. For example, a waiver of spousal support is invalid if the party wasn't represented by an attorney. Agreements that promote or reward divorce are also violative of public policy and unenforceable. This is a very complicated issue, and no competent attorney could or should give you a specific opinion based on the limited facts you presented. You definitely should seek the advice of an experienced Family law attorney in your area.
You should contact a family law attorney. Some family law attorneys work on a limited scope representation basis, as I do, which means we only handle a certain part of parts of your case which helps keeps legal costs lower.
