Question: I signed a prenup agreement with my husband and now we're getting a divorce. But I found out that he had assets I didn't know about when I signed the prenup.
He has several bank accounts that I didn't know existed, including one in Switzerland. And I didn't know that he was part owner of a small printing company. I think the bank accounts and the printing company are worth a lot of money.
I only found out about them because my husband was drunk and I overheard him talking to his friend. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He thought I was out of the house shopping with the kids. But my car didn't start and I came back into the house.
Then when he left the house I looked into his safe and found some papers about the bank accounts and the company.
We have a prenuptial agreement. But I never knew about the accounts or the business. I feel like he cheated on that prenup. Is the prenup still valid even though he lied about some things?

Answer: For a prenup to be legally valid and binding all assets have to be fully disclosed. If your husband did not fully disclose all of his assets, then the prenup may very well be found invalid and not in effect. Certainly not disclosing bank accounts and an ownership interest in a business may lead a judge to nullify the prenup.
