2017 House Bill 4751: Invalidate pre-nuptial agreements for specified reasons
Introduced by Rep. Klint Kesto (R) on June 13, 2017
To invalidate a prenuptial agreement if a party’s consent was the result of fraud, duress, a mistake or not being given adequate financial disclosures, or if a court deems that circumstances not reasonably foreseeable before getting married (including getting rich after marriage) have made enforcement “unconscionable.” A recent Court of Appeals ruling appears to have given judges more latitude to invalidate these agreements, and the bill would limit that to the factors it specifies.   Official Text and Analysis.
