You might either be researching prenups online and come across the term “second look” or your prenup attorney might have mentioned it to you and in the midst of all the information the attorney is giving you, you didn’t understand his explanation of the “second look.”
When a prenuptial agreement is drafted in Massachusetts, the agreement must be “fair.” But in order for the prenuptial agreement to be valid when you need to use it (i.e. divorce), it must also be fair at the time of divorce. That is what is meant by the second look. You look at it once to determine if it’s fair and then you look at it again at the time of divorce to determine if it’s still fair.
