Can prenuptial agreements be considered null and void?

If a person has significant assets, he or she may want to consider a prenuptial agreement. These agreements help couples to outline each party's obligations and rights regarding assets each party brought into the marriage and can also include other terms that suit the particular circumstances of the couple. Prenuptial agreements are often upheld by courts, even if one of the people who signed it has changed their mind about the agreement after the fact. While the purpose of the contract is to prevent such mind-changing from affecting important decisions that have already been made, there are some circumstances in which a court may invalidate a prenup.
