A: Post-nuptial agreements are recognized in all 50 states, regardless of where they were originally drafted and filed. However, many laws vary state to state, therefore, if a matter included in the post-nuptial agreement was pertinent to the laws in the state in which it was filed, that matter may not hold up in a divorce in a state with different laws. It is best to have the agreement reviewed by an experienced Family Law attorney in both the state in which it is being filed, as well as any other state(s) of concern to ensure the terms are prepared in light of the laws in each state.
