West Palm Beach, FL asked in Divorce for Florida

Q: Question is about my prenup. I was a millionaire making 150K a month when I married my wife 10 yrs ago.

I required a prenup back then since I had most of the assets and a thriving business. Now, after my business failed 5 yrs ago, my income and retirement is only 142K a year. Her net worth is triple mine since I have been paying all the bills and living expenses, but did not have to. The prenup says she will receive 8K a month from me in a divorce.

Can this still be enforced since circumstances have drastically changed. She is the wealthy one now, not me, and has all the assets.

A: Yes, she can probably enforce it. But a divorce attorney had best look at it to be sure.
