Many look to a prenuptial agreement as being a way to get all the cards out on the table before commencing a marriage. These documents can govern a lot of aspects of a Maryland marriage, with a primary concern often being the financial status of a couple in the event they divorce. However, a recent out-of-state court decision has given some individuals hope that they can void their prenuptial agreement.
A recent court order nullified a prenuptial agreement on the grounds that the husband made false claims at the time the document was signed. The judge also found that the wife was put under intense pressure to sign just one day before their wedding. The judge found that these acts constituted an imposition of undue duress on the woman and used this finding to disallow the agreement.
