All modern passenger jet planes have at least two engines. Similar reasoning applies to prenuptial agreements. Many will argue that a good prenuptial agreement should fly safely on its own without the need for a “second engine.” However, a second engine could be a Nevada Asset Protection Trust (“APT”) that could only be contested in a Nevada court. Simply by requiring a litigant to seek redress in another jurisdiction will present a strong financial and psychological deterrent to a disgruntled spouse seeking to overturn the prenuptial agreement. Two engines are safer and stronger than one!
