Hello. You do not have to enter into a new full blown agreement if you are simply looking to change one term of the agreement (or, even if you are looking at changing more terms in the agreement). The two of you can sit down and decide which items you would like to change and write it up yourselves -- call it an "amendment to prenuptial agreement" and simply state in the opening paragraph that you are amending "that certain prenuptial agreement dated __________ as follows:" and then set out in paragraph format what you are amending in the document. Then you can both sign it in front of witnesses and a notary (you can find a notary at most banks if the two of you appear there with the document to sign). Then, keep the amendment with the original prenuptial agreement in a safe place. Amending it yourselves is perfectly legal and the amendment will be enforceable in court. You really do not need to involve attorneys to do this amendment as you are describing.
