Thank you. Firstly, the prenup was drafted by one of LA's top divorce attorneys and is 60 pages long. I was represented by an attorney of my own but we only signed the prenup the day before the wedding even though the first draft was presented to me about 3 weeks earlier. Unfortunately my attorney did not really explain it to me at the time. My husband is saying it would not be fair to make me a partner in his business because it existed BEFORE we got married so I am not entitled to be part of it. He also maintains that because my invention is a NEW venture started during the marriage he should be entitled to a percentage of that new business if he fronts the capital. IN other words he is asking for a percentage of my business in exchange for his money and deems this fair as "we" are only starting this new business now. Does this make any sense to you from a legal standpoint?
In addition, if we were to draft a business agreement would it trump the prenup in divorce court, even if he provided the capital from HIS property/money?
