If a post nuptial agreement isn't filed with the court, what keeps the opposing lawyer from changing the language in his copy?

Q: I agreed to dismiss the divorce action I had filed if we signed a post nuptial agreement. My question is, since the agreement doesn't get filed with the court, what keeps the opposing lawyer from recreating the document and changing the language in his copy? The signature page is separate. I ask because I believe this may have happened to me.

A: David's Answer: Best practices dictate that the parties initial each page to prevent just such a thing (though usually it's a party who tries to commit fraud - extremely rarely would an attorney put their license on the line like that). That said, anyone who would do that would be committing fraud - easily revealed as there are usually duplicate originals done. You're best advised to call a White Plains Divorce attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
