Prenup Ripped Up &

Thrown Into Ocean On Honeymoon

Still In Effect: NY Judge

Ripped Up Prenup

 

Ezra Braha wanted to marry his fiancee Rina.  The Brooklyn business man needed her to sign a Prenuptial Agreement.  His father would kill him otherwise.  She says he let her know that and told her that he would rip it up after they were married.  He promised never to use it.  She got a lawyer and they both signed a Prenup.  They got married.  Then they went on their honeymoon and the couple tore up their Prenups and threw the pieces in the ocean.  Rina had peace of mind.  Ezra had pieces of a copy of the prenuptial agreement.  The real agreement would surface during a heated argument years later.

Even if you rip the prenuptial agreement

up on your honeymoon

and throw it in the ocean, it may still be valid…

While fighting, Ezra produced his Prenup!  He said that he tore up a copy. Rina’s Lawyer told the New York Post that Ezra stated in a deposition that it was never his intention to rip up the original because he could not betray his father. That was not all Rina discovered.  Turns out, Ezra had hidden the fact that he had a 25% stake in his parents’ multimillion dollar family business, which owned real estate, including hotels and malls!  A Brooklyn, NY Judge ruled that despite these facts, the Prenup was valid and could be enforced.  The Prenup specifically stated that no promises or covenants outside of the document should be taken into account.  Both parties were also represented by Lawyers.  “In this case, defendant fails to make a sufficient showing that would warrant setting the prenuptial agreement aside,” said the Judge in his decision.

Verbal Promises Can Be Used By A Court

To Invalidate A Prenup!


More ABC news videos | ABC Health News

A Long Island, New York woman recently convinced a Divorce Court to make a ground breaking decision. As seen in this ABC News Video, a couple went to war in Court over their prenuptial agreement, and the husband lost.  A New York Appellate Court threw out the couple’s prenuptial agreement based on oral promises made by the husband to the wife.  The agreement was presented to the wife six weeks before the wedding.  The wife’s lawyer called the agreement “heavy handed” in an interview.  The wife refused to sign and four days before the wedding, she says he promised to get rid of the prenuptial agreement once the two began to have children.  She signed.  A Court later ruled that he had fraudulently induced her to sign as he did not rip the prenup up and in fact sought to enforce it.

Oral Agreements & Verbal Promises

can be used by Courts

to Invalidate a Prenuptial Agreement…

In an Interview with ABC News, her Lawyer, Dennis D’ Antonio, a commercial litigator in Manhattan states, “If you are too greedy and marginalize a spouse, it’s a lot easier for an Appellate Court to agree with a legal argument that would invalidate a prenup than it otherwise might be if that prenup was fair. It’s not a given that the prenup is going to rule at the end of the day. It levels the playing field with couples dissolving a marriage with a prenup.”

Duress Can Lead to The Invalidation

of A Prenuptial Agreement!

 

 

Be very careful not to put pressure on your spouse to sign a prenuptial agreement!  If a court believes that a party was under undue pressure, it may invalidate a prenuptial agreement, even if both parties were represented by lawyers!

One of the biggest questions facing a couple is when should they sign a prenuptial agreement, if at all.  One of the things a couple has to understand, is that the negotiation of and signing of a prenuptial agreement should take place with as little pressure as possible.  Pressure can come from not just the behavior of one party in the engagement, but also from a lack of time to properly review the prenuptial agreement.  Forbes Magazine recently reported that despite his having paid millions of dollars to his wife pursuant to a premarital agreement, the wife of Billionaire Ken Griffin is seeking to invalidate their prenuptial agreement on the grounds that she was under undue pressure to sign it.  Ken Griffin and Anne Dias-Griffin were married for approximately 11 years.  According to Forbes, Dias-Griffin had the assistance of three law firms while negotiating her prenuptial agreement.  This dispute should serve as a lesson to those looking to enter into a prenuptial agreement: Avoid pressure when entering into a Prenuptial Agreement!  You should give both parties ample time to read and review the agreement.  The closer to your wedding date the agreement is signed, the more likely a court may decide that there might have been undue pressure on a party!

 

Ken Griffin is a billionaire who made a great deal of his fortune founding and managing a huge hedge fund called Citadel.
