The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled in Bedrick v. Bedrick, 17 A.3d 17 (Conn. 2011) that post-nuptial agreements may be enforceable but that they are subject to stricter standards than premartial agreements. Moreover, in this case, the court found the contract unconscionable at the time of trial and thus void and unenforceable. Such agreements must be examined to ensure that they are fair and equitable at the time of divorce and whether enforcement would “work an injustice.”
