New York, NY asked in Contracts, Divorce and Family Law for New York

Q: Last page of my prenup was not signed by notary, only the appendices. Does this invalidate the document?

Want to make sure prenup is still enforceable in court because it is missing the notary signature on the last page. The notary signature and stamp is only on the appendices, where the detail of the assets and liabilities is listed.

A: If the notary stamp & signature was not on the acknowledgement page, then it would appear the prenup is invalid. One is best advised to have it re-notarized - though definitive advice can only be given after a review of the document. Thus, please call a NYC Family law attorney for a full assessment.
