In April, we covered the case of a New York couple who was in court disputing the validity of the prenuptial agreement they signed in 1997. The woman involved in the case moved to nix the agreement because her husband failed to provide proof of identity to the notary at the time the document was signed. The dispute began in 2007 and worked its way through the courts until just recently.
At the end of May, a Rochester, New York, appeals court ruled in favor of the wife. The husband tried to make the case that failing to check for identification was an "honest mistake," and provided a sworn affidavit from the notary in 2007. Having an affidavit ten years after the fact was not enough to sway the court, however.
