The law can be complicated for Detroit residents to understand. A contract, for example, can be the subject of many disputes between different parties, as individuals on opposing sides of the deal have different interpretations of what was meant at the time the contract was signed. What may be enforceable in one case may not be upheld in another, depending on the circumstances involved in both.
Recently, this blog has discussed some of these concepts within the context of prenuptial agreements. Prenuptial agreements are frequently entered before a marriage by individuals who wish to protect themselves in the event of a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements are often upheld and enforced when it comes to issues of property division. When a person has separate property that he or she intends to keep after the end of a marriage, for example, this can be included in a prenuptial agreement and enforced in a divorce. On the other hand, certain provisions may not be enforced, like those that attempt to limit the person’s child support obligations.
In other cases, the provisions of the agreement itself may be perfectly fine, but one individual may not have known what he or she was agreeing to at the time the agreement was signed. Accordingly, it can be difficult to tell whether a particular provision will be upheld by a court.
