Posted on Thursday, May 17, 2018

The Michigan Association for Justice published an article by Liisa Speaker on “Court of Appeals changes the Prenuptial Agreement Landscape” (Spring Journal 2017). The article pertains to the recent COA decision in Allard v Allard, on remand from the Michigan Supreme Court. The COA held that the parties through their prenuptial agreements cannot waive the trial court’s authority to do equity in divorce cases. The article examines the Allard decision and its impact, along with the future utility of prenuptial agreements.
