– from Lori E. in Brown Deer, WI
Before my husband and I were married, we agreed to a prenuptial agreement waiving our spousal rights. We decided to divide our estate among our respective families. We waived the right of ownership of each other’s property and any property obtained during the course of our marriage. Everything would be given to our respective families equally. We never mentioned divorce. We are now getting divorced. I feel I am entitled to 50% of our marital property and maintenance. Will our prenup in regards to our death be used during our divorce?
