Does New Hampshire Recognize Prenuptial Agreements?

Yes. New Hampshire will recognize prenuptial or antenuptial agreements. However, the validity of such agreements are oftentimes challenged once the divorce begins. If a spouse challenges the validity of the prenuptial or antenuptial agreement, some of the factors it will consider include:

• The length of the marriage;

• Whether both parties were represented by attorneys in drafting and negotiating the terms of the prenuptial or antenuptial agreement;

• Whether both parties fully disclosed their financial circumstances at the time the prenuptial or antenuptial agreement was executed;

• Whether both parties executed the prenuptial or antenuptial agreement freely and voluntarily; and

• Whether enforcing the terms of the prenuptial or antenuptial agreement would produce a grossly unfair result to one party.
