Validity of prenuptial agreements and other marital contracts

When Maryland couples or others around the country get divorced, emotions can often run high. Issues such as child custody or division of property can become contentious. In many situations, having prenuptial agreements or similar agreements in place can greatly reduce the amount of tension between the parting spouses. However, if one party questions the validity of a marital agreement during the divorce proceedings, the tension is likely to flare again.

Amnesty for those who owe back child support

Those who have outstanding warrants and have had their driver's licenses suspended may be offered amnesty soon. Residents of Maryland and other states have been offered similar programs for those who owe back child support. By working together with the Office of Child Support Enforcement, parents who agree to terms and resume payments can have holds on their license released.

Prenuptial agreements may be the new normal

The notion of staying married forever and sharing everything until death should be the focus when marrying, but it is not always the outcome for some. While many enter marriages with forever in mind, statistics show that almost half of the marriages will end in divorce in the United States. For many young couples in Maryland and other states, prenuptial agreements  may be the first legal document they sign before entertaining the idea of holy matrimony.
