Can a judge choose not to enforce a prenup?

Yes, a judge can choose not to enforce a prenup.

I've seen a few cases where the court did not.

But usually it's because of crazy things, right? Like someone puts in their prenup that, so and so person only has the ability to decide whether we can get divorced or not.

So certain things that might be against public policy, may strike it down.

Or the financial disclosure wasn't there. Or one party didn't have a lawyer.

These are reasons why a prenup is thrown out. But if you follow the other elements that we've discussed those are going to be pretty strong.

Those are going to be enforceable, inshallah.
