Stephanie March challenges prenup with Bobby Flay

California fans of TV chef Bobby Flay or of actress Stephanie March may have been following the couple's impending divorce in the news. They separated in March, and there have been rumors that Flay was unfaithful. The actress is currently living with her mother, who suffers from cancer, as well as recovering from recent surgery herself.

According to one of Flay's representatives, the allegations came from a letter that was meant to be private between lawyers. The spokesperson also said it is linked to efforts by March to change the terms of a prenuptial agreement. However, March denies having anything to do with the release of the information to the press.

Although the prenuptial agreement was signed three days prior to the wedding, there were no attempts to change it over the next decade. However, March is now challenging the terms of the agreement.

Those who are planning on marrying may wish to prepare a prenuptial agreement as March and Flay did. This might be particularly important in a community property state like California if the parties have amassed a number of assets prior to the marriage. However, a prenuptial agreement is not airtight. It might be more likely to be challenged and struck down in a court if it is made very close to a wedding as is the case with March and Flay because this could be seen as an agreement signed under some duress. A postnuptial agreement may also present the same issues. As a result, a person who is considering entering into such an agreement should consult with a family law attorney to ensure that the resulting document will be valid and binding if subsequently challenged by the other party.
