Are Prenups Enforceable in Massachusetts?

Yes, as long as the terms of the agreement are fair and reasonable for both parties at the time of execution and at the entry level of the divorce judgement. A prenup is not enforceable if the terms are unfair, one of the party members was forced into signing, or if the divided property is lopsided.
