Family Law Keyed to Wadlington
Blige v. Blige
Citation:656 S.E.2d 822
Before the Bliges married, they signed a prenuptial agreement providing that Willie would retain as his sole and separate property some land that he owned and “any house or structure which may be situated upon said property.” There was no house or structure on the property at the time, but Willie had hidden away $150,000 in cash for the purpose of building a home there after the wedding. Meagan had no knowledge of that money. When she filed for divorce, she sought to have the prenuptial agreement set aside for failure to comply with the legal requirements for prenuptial agreements because Willie had failed to make a fair and clear disclosure of his income, assets and liabilities before the execution of the agreement.
