A Collin County Judge ruled that the premarital agreement between Deion and Pilar Sanders is valid, despite Pilar’s contention that her initials were forged in several places in the document.
Had the judged ruled the premarital agreement invalid, it would have been “a game-changer,” Jeff Anderson, an Orsinger Nelson partner who is not involved in the Sanders case, told Fox 4 News. Without a premarital agreement, he said, the couples’ assets would have been considered community property “unless proven otherwise.”
That would have probably given Pilar Sanders a vastly larger share of the former Dallas Cowboys’ assets.
