Westchester Attorney notes New York may not give credit where it’s due in divorce judgments

I recently posted about the importance of pre-nups and many, many of my friends who are walking down the aisle this year have poo-pooed the notion or just ignored it completely.  However, a recent decision by New York’s high court, the Court of Appeals, highlights the need for the all-important prenuptial agreement, especially in cases of second marriages.

In the case of  Mahoney-Buntzman v. Buntzman, the high court determined that the wife, who helped her husband pay maintenance to the first wife and who also helped him pay for a graduate degree, is not entitled to recoup 50% of either.  So, there ya go, being in the know will prevent you from losing your dough.
