Frequently Asked Questions
at Williams Family Law


Q: My spouse will not consent to a divorce simply to avoid paying alimony. Can the court grant me a divorce without mutual consent?

A: The short answer is yes, you still can file for divorce without your spouse's consent. After a period of separation, the divorce then can proceed through the legal system.

Q: Is my prenuptial agreement still valid if I caught my spouse cheating?

A: Prenuptial agreements are defined by the parties making the agreement. Unless you specifically included an "infidelity clause" in some form when you signed your prenuptial agreement, there is no reason to expect that your agreement will be invalidated by a judge if your spouse has committed adultery.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Although people enter into a marriage intending to make a life-long commitment to one another, the reality is that approximately 50 percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce — and some marriages end many decades after their wedding day. Given this possibility, it is vital for certain individuals to have a plan to protect their assets and their family in the event of a divorce by establishing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

Find out more about the legal details involved in prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
