As reported by tmz, George Lazenby, who once played James Bond in 1969, is challenging his prenuptial agreement on grounds that his estranged wife and Baltimore native Pamela Shriver has a much bigger house and is so rich it makes him feel bad, and that his kids don't take him seriously. Pamela Shriver is a former tennis professional with 22 Grand Slam doubles titles and a 1988 Olympic gold medal. Lazenby is asking a judge to void the prenup and award him $16,133 in monthly support.
He says his wife is "30 times a millionaire" and he has only a million. Boo hoo. Is Lazenby essentially asking the court to void a prenup because it hurts his pride that his wife is so much richer than he? Not a very convincing argument. We say that if the pre-nup is valid, it's too late to change his mind now.
In Utah, courts do in fact honor pre-nuptial agreements, but only if they meet strict criteria. Pre-nuptial agreements are clearly the type of document you want a competent attorney to draft. At Hughes Estate Group we draft pre-nup agreements. We recently had one of our agreements challenged and upheld in litigation. We can help you do these agreements right.
