Wife Led Marriage Agreement

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that from 1975 to 1988 in the United States, women in families with children petitioned for divorce in about two-thirds of cases. In 1975, 71.4 per cent of cases were filed by women and in 1988, 65 per cent by women. [99] It is estimated that more than 95% of divorces in the United States are “uncontested” because both parties are able to agree on property, children, and support issues without a hearing (with or without lawyers/mediators/collaborative lawyers). While the number of women surpassing their partners has risen to more than a quarter of all marriages, more and more couples are insisting on entering into marriage contracts before the big wedding day. According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) a few years ago, 63% of divorce lawyers say they have seen an increase in prenup applications.
