Helping Clients Navigate A Course To A Better Future

Prenuptial agreements can halt disagreements before they start

When a marriage is just getting started in a haze of love and affection, it’s hard to picture any trouble. But feelings can change over time. Even people who still have warm feelings for each other can decide to call it quits. What can make the separation harder? It often comes down to the division of property.

North Carolina has some guidelines on how people can separate their assets in a divorce. A lot of trouble and effort can be saved when people work out how to figure out a fair separation of assets that works for both of them — especially when they do it far in advance of any marital problems. The security of a prenuptial agreement can make an approaching divorce easier to bear.

Having a prenuptial agreement does not make it more likely you will get a divorce. It simply asks you and your intended spouse to agree — now, while you’re still in love — how you want to treat each other in a divorce as far as your allocated rights and obligations.

A prenuptial agreement can cover specific assets or amounts of money that each spouse will take in the split, as well as alimony or potential child support if they apply to your situation. A prenup may be amended or even revoked if both parties submit written requests to do so and they are in agreement.

If you haven’t yet said your vows, it may be wise to sit down with your intended spouse and have a frank discussion about prenuptial agreements. An experienced family law attorney can talk to you about your options to make the division of assets fair, should you eventually divorce.
